Description :
The chronology is based on approximately 30 C dates of molluscs which were collected from lacustrine and paludal deposits of the Ine Sakane sand sea. Two lacustrine episodes are recorded: ca. 9 500-6 500 yr B.P. and ca. 5 500-4 500 yr B.P., the latest corresponding to the establishment of numerous Neolithic settlements in the area. The isotopic composition (O and C) of the fauna reflects highly variable hydrological conditions.
