Prehistoric fishing tackle, sewing equipment and jewellery made from animal bones have been discovered south of Cairo in Egypt.

“The mission also found caves used by prehistoric man,” he said.

“The most important item is an awl made of animal bone and granite, which shows that prehistoric man devised many ways to sew leather,” Khaled Saad, who headed the archaeological mission that uncovered the artifacts, was quoted as saying.
