A portion of the skull was removed for therapy or thaumaturgy — for instance, to reduce pressure within the skull, or to release evil spirits.

In this paper we review the ancient writing systems used by people in Middle Africa, and the cognate writing systems they spread to Asia. Garamantian raiding activity against their Sub-Saharan neighbours may well have been an important source for the trans-Saharan slave trade of antiquity, more so than voluntary exchange.
Evidence of trans-Saharan trade has been found in Kissi, Burkina Faso and Dia Shoma, Mali which means that this trade did not deal exclusively with the cities of the Middle Niger but extended to the Niger Bend as well.
Measures and actions taken by water stakeholders to tackle the water poverty issue are discussed and assessed, together with possible future solution methods.
The finding is the strongest evidence yet that the art of making antibiotics, which officially dates to the discovery of penicillin inwas common practice nearly 2, years ago.
It is clear that Lucian does not romanticize the lifestyle of the Garamantes.
