      Some further references on plant domestication which are very worthwhile
      for interested parties to read:

      Archaeological Record of Eastern and Southern Africa. Journal of
      Archaeological Research 13, 337-366.

      The Subsistence Ecology of Plant and Animal Domestication. Journal of
      Archaeological Method and Theory 10, 323-368.

      Holocene Middle Nile Region. Journal of Field Archaeology 22, 157-174.

      With regards to David Hall's post. The earliest evidence for controlled
      fire comes from Member III at Swartkrans, South Africa, dated to c. 1.2 mya.
