forbidden archeology

After enjoying the fruits of your labors, we all need a place to chill. This is that place. Totally senseless irrelevant banter encouraged.

forbidden archeology

Post by dill786 »

Located in the Air Massif of Niger are two of the largest animal rock petroglyphs in the world.

Known as the Dabous Giraffes they have been dated to about 8,000BCE.

This this area of Niger has over 900 similar carvings of animals and humans.

The period of these glyphs (12,000-7,000BCE) was known as the Neolithic Subpluvial, a time when the Sahara was a much wetter savannah that stretched thousands of miles and could sustain animal and human life.

The carving is 20 feet in height and consists of two giraffes carved into the Dabous Rock with a great amount of detail. Dabous Rock is located on the slope of a small rocky outcropping of sandstone in the first foothills of the Air Mountains. One of the giraffes is male, while the other, smaller, is female.

Although much focus was on the giraffe carvings, they are in fact just a part of what Dabous holds. A later archaeological survey carried out by the Bradshaw Foundation and led by Jean Clottes revealed over 800 hundred hundred smaller yet no less significant carvings on the outcrop. Lessons from Dabous pose the obvious question: what else is waiting to be discovered? What mysterious secrets lie hidden in the Sahara?

yes, airspace to go to the bottom and return
from what i read, it looks like they shoot beams at angles in addition to straight up and down
looking for those gaps

but a heap of noise to factor out it must be as foliage returns the lions share of them

still doesnt explain to me how it sees through packed sand...
