Abstract

The lower forelimb (metacarpal) of an equid, identified as that of a very large wild ass (E. africanus africanus) or a small sized wild horse (E. caballus), was recovered during excavations of a tumulus at Ramat Saharonim in the Central Negev. Given its close association with a Late Neolithic (Timnian) human interment, we have interpreted this bone as representing an early example of a grave offering from the Levantine deserts.
