Palaeodeserts - Climate Change and Human Evolution in the Arabian Desert 

Life and Death at the Cross-roads of the Old World Logo ERC

The Palaeodeserts Project is examining environmental change in the Arabian Desert over the last one million years. A multidisciplinary team of researchers is studying the effect of environmental change on early humans and animals that settled or passed through the Desert and how their responses determined whether they
survived or died out.
