The Pleistocene period, during which Paleolithic Man hunted along the banks of the Nile and ranged over the surrounding hills and plateaus, was a time of copious rainfall in Egypt. The present survey was started with the object of piecing together for the first time the continuous history of the Lower Nile Valley and its inhabitants before the known predynastic period. Its aim has been to visit and study as much as possible of both banks of the river, revising and coordinating previous work and collecting new data and specimens: stone implements, rocks, shells, and bones.
