  1. thx mathilda for this important informations

    ancient civilizations of agriculture in Africa are noticed in the north (first time) and Sahara of africa in a second time.
    I find that the Afrocentrits were left the land of blacks to white lands for earning other points against the history of slavery

    • To be fair, while farming appears to have arrived from Asia, writing seems an independant discovery in upper Egypt, and pottery seems to get discovered somewhere around the south of Libya/North Chad area about 10k ago
