This report provides information on what the Namib environment could have been like in the past; how people lived there and on what the past can teach us about man-environment relationships. In the course of reconnaissance work in the different environmental regions of the Namib interest narrowed down to a site on the gravel plains of the central Namib. The material recovered from the excavation in the rock shelter near Mirabib comprised wellpreserved faunal, floral and cultural remains spanning the time period of the Holocene.
