Abstract This article is an anthropological and paleopathological study of six subjects from Wadi Shaw. One dates from the Mesolithic, the others from the Neolithic and protohistorical time periods. The statistical analysis, based on cranial metric data, has indicated a degree of resemblance between the Wadi Shaw individuals and the Saharan populations, as well as some Negroid characteristics. Our study also highlights dental mutilations.
