Scientists find fossil proof of Egypt's ancient climate
Analysis of silts "from a small lake (now dry) in the Kharga Oasis of western Egypt to reconstruct climatic conditions during the lifetime of the lake. Their analyses support a surprising picture of arid Egypt: 130,000 years ago, what everyone considers an eternal desert was actually a thriving savannah, complete with humans, rhinos, giraffes and other wild life." Have a look at this article - it isn't very long, but it is fascinating.
