Similar tech used to discover the Tigris, Euphrates, Hiddekel and Pison rivers.

I'll find the source after work

Cave of Swimmers

Something that is somewhat related. A cave in the Sahara discovered in the 1930s.


It contains Neolithic pictographs (rock painting images) of people swimming. They are estimated to have been created as early as 10,000 years ago with the beginning of the African Humid Period, when the Sahara was significant greener and wetter than it is today.

This isnt really anything new. The sahara goes through cycles. Every 20k years or so from dry desert to habital grasslands then back. Its location on the earths axis is affects the weather patterns and the normal wobble/shifting of the planet results in this cycle.

Awesome as always, incidentally I just did a thread about a Niger to Nile valley connection, and the largely ignored civilization of Wagadu or Ghana, these folks settled the region of Southern Mauritania on the banks of the Senegal and Niger rivers they had a mixed economy like their counterparts on the Nile from at least 4000 B.C and came into full bloom at about 2500 B.C went into decline sometime after because of climatic condition, rise again then dipped,

This is told in their
mythology in the form of Bida the Black Snake



For the Soninke people, the decline of their empire was due to the legend of Wagadu, and the rupture of the pact between the empire and the black snake. This happened after the nobles chose Siya Yatabare as the annual sacrifice. She was the most beautiful and “cleanest” virgin girl in that year, but she was also engaged to be married. Her fiancé, Maadi, was the son of Djamere Soukhounou whose unique quality was that he always did what he promised. When Maadi was told him what would happen, that his fiancée would be given to “Bida” - the black snake of Wagadu, he promised Siya that she would not die in the well of Wagadu. Siya tried to convince him that it is her destiny, that he should let her to be the gift to the snake in order to save the Empire, but Maadi refused. Within days, he asked his friend, the blacksmith of his village named Bomou, to sharpen his saber. When the day came, Maadi set on his way in the direction of the well of Wagadu. Siya Yatabare was well dressed and her hairstyle was in plaited with gold. The praise-singer encouraged her, as did her family. When they left, she saw Maadi and they both fell in tears. Siya told him that if he killed the snake, Wagadu would not have any more rain and the empire would be destroyed forever. Maadi refused, saying their destinies are ratified. He left her and hid himself nearby to wait for the snake.

Check out the works of Augustin Holl for the Dhar Tichitt and The Kirikongo complex ,

Map of shared technology owing to the dispersal of folks migrating from dry phase Sahara , contacts were maintained with populations that toughed it out in during the dry phase Sahara and the Nile and Niger river valleys and so it's no surprise that, culturally they would maintain similarity in beliefs, institutions and art. for they all came from the same Saharan nursery.

Everything that has been is likely to change as Earths plant and climate evolution takes place. It is directional. From what was once thought of as an atmosphere like fog, to what we have now. Vast deserts, and desertification going on as resources disfigure and change the land scape. Evolutionary altering. The lifecycle of our planet.... The ancients put up monoliths to determine the time of year. Time always wins..

Ummmm, this particular photo has been out for quite awhile. This isn't above top secret, it's actually a readily understood and proven theory that a river, particularly that one in the picture, did indeed run through the Sahara region in Africa, making it a lush and fertile place.
