Nabta Playa: An Abandoned Site Dating Back to the Earliest Days of Ancient Egypt
Nabta Playa is an abandoned place located in the southwestern desert of Egypt. Although it may not appear to be a promising area for the study of the prehistoric archaeology as it is considered among the driest areas in the world, there is evidence that there were several humid periods in the past that resulted in a parallel civilization to that one in Delta.
