The great Tassili Park, vast and beautiful expanse of rock and sand reaching the far southeast of Algeria presents a huge concentration of prehistoric rock art. Located in a strange lunar landscape of great geological interest, this site has one of the most important groupings of prehistoric cave art in the world.

Archaeological discoveries made by Henri Loth in the 1950s made Tassili famous. According to the Tassili National Park Office, the Neolithic archaeological heritage is concentrated in the Djanet region, with more than 15,000 stone carvings and paintings., and Oued Djarat is one of the most prestigious sites in Tassili Park as itcontains 4,000 stone carvings and paintings, which have partially resisted the difficult climatic conditions. The archaeological heritage recorded up to now provides evidence of a civilisation that dates back 2.5 million years.

This civilisation experienced prosperity as it evolved from precariousness to stability as it discovered pottery and how domesticate animals.

They lived on the shores of an ancient Lake!
