African Pastoralism

I was introduced to West African archaeology through my involvement in the analysis of the beautiful rockshelter paintings of the Tassili-N-Ajjer. These elaborate panels depicting pastoral life provide a window into mid-Holocene societies of the central Sahara Desert. I maintain an active research interest in pastoral ideology.
