It has been suggested that wild einkorn grain was harvested in the late Paleolithic and early Mesolithic Ages, 16,000-15,000 BC. Confirmed finds of wild grain remains have been dated to the early Neolithic (Stone Age) 10,000 BC.


Early evidence of agriculture in Africa dates from 16,000 BCE


Evidence of human occupation of an area near Aswan on the River Nile called Wadi Kubbaaniya has been discovered. The humans are believed to have had a very simple hunter/gatherer lifestyle, following and hunting animals and preparing food such as tubers for consumption. They were tool manufacturers and are believed to have moved around the Wadi Kubbaniya area as food and resources required them too, living a sustenance lifestyle. This site is believed to have been occupied between 17,000 and 15,000 years ago.


The area of Kabri was first settled 16,000 years ago, during the Neolithic period. Permanent structures appeared around the year 10000 BCE.

§North America

Paleo-Indians' first "widespread" habitation of America occurred during the end of the last glacial period or, more specifically, what is known as the late glacial maximum, around 16,500–13,000 years ago.

§Modern United States

The archaeological site of Meadowcroft in modern Pennsylvania is particularly interesting because of the dates applied to artefacts at the site by radiocarbon dating. Certainly there is evidence of pre-Clovis materials and a date has been suggested for human activity some 16,000 years ago. However if the more distantly suggested 19,000 years ago is true, then it would quite possibly be the oldest known site in North America.
