The 1001 Tales of Indiana Josh

For the various tribes that inhabit the Sahara, their world is one that has been secretly civilized for centuries, has a thousand paths and roads. Intersecting these paths are scattered oases, lost routes and histories. Garamantes, the lost kingdom of the Imazighen, buried in the sands for thousands of years until unearthed by archaeologists. Tin Hinan, the Mother of the Tribes, an ancient Amazigh legend thought to be little more than myth discovered to be true. Uan Muhuggiag, the Black Mummy, the oldest in the world, indicating that Amazigh were mummifying their dead long before Egyptians. Carvings of dog-headed figures like Anubis in caves throughout Algeria and Libya, pre-dating the earliest Egyptian petroglyphs. Tifinagh script bearing a remarkable resemblance to early Egyptian.
All of this whispering, hinting at the possible birth of Egyptian culture from the womb of the Amazigh people in the Tinariwen.
