Photo for Today: Fossicking for artefacts in Bahariya

Wessex archaeologist Chris Ellis hunting for lithics
(prehistoric stone tools and manufacturing debris)
in Bahariya as the sun began to set.
And yes, he found some. The Western Desert is strewn with them but
you do have to know what you're looking for. And Chris does.
Please note that Chris put everything back exactly as he found it.
