On the other hand, it should not be forgotten that in some cases well-dated materials with clear parallels in the above-mentioned chrono-typological sequences have come from the excavation of some tumuli, see for ex. Today in the Jezel region, on the southern slope of the Jebel Abyad, only about fifteen gazelles survive in the wild, whereas a larger group of gazelles 675together with oryxes 165 and ostriches 38live in semi-liberty on the Talila Reserve.
