The main aim of the geoarchaeological research of Sabaloka in the 2014 season was the paleopedological mapp - ing around the archaeological sites excavated in the past seasons. Generally, four main types of soils or paleosoils were described. These soils correspond to the geomor - phology of the studied area, past climate and hydrological conditions. Around the rocky cities Phaeozems and their relicts and derivatives were described, while in the direction of the Sabaloka plateau, Leptosols of a different age prevail. In areas proximate to the Nile River, Stagnosols, in some places covered by organic sediments, and also Fluvisols were described. The reconnaissance of these soils provides key information for interpreting the environment in the context of past human occupation in the study area.
