Wadi El Kubbaniya Man  is the third oldest human skeleton that was discovered in 1982 in the Wadi Kubbaniya on the west side of the upper Nile valley.

The skeleton was of a male aged between 20-25 years, and was dated to 15,000-

17,000 years ago. The body had been buried face down in an extended position with head to the east and arms along the sides in a pit dug into a coarse laminated sand sheet.

The biological affinity of the skeleton suggested similarity to the Jebel Sahaba

Nubians.
