  • Descrição: Well-preserved animal coprolites were recovered from the Workmen's Village, associated with the construction of the tombs of the XVIII Dynasty at Amarna in Egypt during the mid-14th centurybc. The purely archaeological evidence has been interpreted as indicating the source of the dung as pigs, which was supported by study of endoparasite remains. Careful dissection of the excreta produced a small insect fauna, which included the small eyed flour beetle,Polorus ratzeburgi, the earliest fossil record. Further evidence of the diet of the animals was recovered.
