Archaeological excavations were carried out from 1987 to 1990 in the prehistorically inhabited cave site of Taza I (eastern coast, Algeria). Recovered materials included stone and bone artifacts, faunal remains, and a single human skull. A radiocarbon date for the upper cave level from which the skull was found was 16,100 BP. Taza Skull I is from an adult female, very small overall, particularly in the middle facial area. Her measured cranial capacity was only 1,125 ml. However, her cranial and facial shape compare closely with several North African skull series from Columnata and Afalou in Algeria, Taforalt in Morocco, and Hassi-el-Abiod in Mali.
The North Africans before the Neolithic all seems quite closely related to each other, from Mali to Algeria. Unfortunately I can’t locate more on this.
