In this paper the author analyses neolithic lithic artifacts from the oasis of Fayum, in the Egyptian Western Desert. She illustrates the results of a study on a sample from the excavations of S.M.Puglisi in the Qasr El-Sagha region (1960s). Such findings are compared with the Epipaleolithic evidence and with other neolithic cultural horizons.
