American archaeologist Fred Wendorf has had an eclectic career, studying the desert climates of Syria and Egypt, as well as those of the American southwest. Wendorf excavated at such sites as Nabta Playa and Wadi Kubbaniya in the middle east, and the Midland site and others in the American southwest and high plains. He is known for his work studying the Neolithic period including the domestication of cattle and the origins of agriculture at sites such as Bir Kiseiba; and the middle paleolithic at Bir Tarfawi. Wendorf founded and is still a member of the Southern Methodist University Department of Anthropology.
