Botanical evidence for Garamantian agriculture in Fezzan, southern Libya.

By Marijke Van der Veen


Metadata only entryThe archaeobotanical analysis of 23 samples of occupation deposits from the Garamantian settlement of Zinchecra, Fezzan, southern Libya, dated to the first millenium BC, has identified 6113, mainly desiccated, plant remains. Six crop plants were found: Triticum dicoccum, Triticum aestivum, Hordeum vulgare, Phoenix dactylifera, Ficus carica, and Vitis vinifera, in addition to a number of wild plants. These remains form the first direct evidence for the arable economy of the Garamantes
