Some of the great deserts of the world lie in the Southern Hemisphere: from the Namib sandsea and the Kalahari 'thirstland' in southern Africa; to the hyper-arid Atacama desert in South America and the immense continental deserts of the interior of Australia.

This book brings together research by leading scholars on the archaeology and Quaternary history of these deserts to provide a fascinating new comparative perspective on their deep history.
