[snip] someone on the team, led by Dr. Paul Sereno of the University of Chicago, spotted something dark against the tawny dunes... In search of pieces of the 110-million-year-old Cretaceous puzzle, Dr. Sereno’s team had found what archaeologists in Niger say is a large Neolithic, or Stone Age, burial and settlement site tentatively dated at 5,000 years old.

[snip] Archaeologists have excavated a trove of Stone Age human skeletons and artifacts on the shores of an ancient lake in the Sahara... “They were living on a diet rich in catfish, mollusks, and shells,” said Paul Sereno, a University of Chicago paleontologist and National Geographic Society Explorer-in-Residence... “’There are whole human skeletons just over there,’ [Hettwer] said, pointing to a low ridge,” Sereno wrote in a 2000 online dispatch from the field. “Our jaws dropped as we tiptoed among skeletons that were buried thousands of years ago. Around the neck of one, we found a series of beads — the outline of a necklace!” In 2003 Sereno returned to map the site and stopped counting at 173 skeletons, which easily made it the largest New Stone Age cemetery ever found in the Sahara. “We saw jewelry on the surface, tools everywhere, the remains of hundreds of people,” Sereno recalled. “I knew that I had to help an archaeological team get a footing out there.” [end]
