"The megaliths of Ellès in Tunisia represent a North African variant of megalithic constructions, which emerged around 2500 BC., while the island of Malta is abandoned by its inhabitants marked by the temples culture. They are located west, south and east of the small village of Ellès, attached to the governorate of Kef, isolated in the mountains in north-west Tunisia, 35 kilometers from the ancient Roman city of Makthar. The megaliths in covered alley, partially equipped with niches, have been little studied. Considered typical of the tombs found around Makthar, a study of 53 of them suggests that some of these tombs would be oriented towards Alpha Centauri. On the other hand, Hoskin explains that their orientations can be explained by the local topography in the sense that the entries all face downstream. Their erection, attributed to the Numidians, occurred before the Phoenicians established trading posts along the coast."

"This amazing stele called AMNAY U VIZAR (UBIZAR) was discovered in Abizar in 1859.
Height: 125 centimeters
Width: 110 centimeters to the top.
It is currently at the National Museum of Antiquities in Algiers.
Abizar is famous for his stele called Amnay n Ubizar (the horseman of Abizar). A stone about one meter diameter, representing an armed horseman with a shield, a javelin (or more...), an object in the left hand, and a pointed beard. The stele is Libyque (Amazigh). It was found in that village of Kabylia (Abizar) in 1858, by Henri Aucapitaine, said Baron Aucapitaine, then second lieutenant of the 36th Infantry Regiment, who named it after the village.
The stele is the first of a long series (about ten) found in the Sebaou basin. The story tells that Captain Abizar, 2000 BC., had made four identical steles to delimit its territory. With the French occupation, only two were discovered.
Some say that this beautiful archaeological discovery dates back 300 BC., and it was found in the village of Abizar by a shepherd who gave it to the colonial authorities. The stele testifies the Amazigh presence in North Africa. Representing an armed horseman with a javelin and a shield, the stone is engraved with tifinagh characters all around."

"A considerable amount of the traditional lore of the matriarchal Berbers is still based on the worship of the Ancestors and the Dead. Most of the Berbers' ancestral doctrines also form an integral part of the jinn lore. Westermarck had pointed out that many of the Berber religious and mythological principles were practiced mostly by Berber women under the disguise of Tomb Worship, where women regularly visit the tombs and perform various rituals in association with the ancient ancestors and the dead, such as receiving sacred prophecy through dreams obtained by sleeping in tombs of holy ancestors.
This current practice, according to Herodotus, goes back to the ancient Libyan Nasamon Berbers, and it may even go back much farther in time since sacred traditions are indeed carried forward from previous generations. The ancient Libyan Nasamons took oath at the graves of persons who were reputed for justice and transparency. In addition to tomb-worship, complete traditions from the Berbers' previous mythology remain alive in various traditions and festivals. Saharan prehistoric art, Berber jewellery, Berber folklore and music have all preserved other fragmented elements of Berber belief and mythology. In addition to that, we also have Egyptian and Greek mythologies as a documented source, in which various references to Libyan mythology were preserved for generations to come, such as the worship of Amon, Ament, Antaeus, Bast, Nit, Poseidon and Shu."

Os #berberes (que chamam a si próprios #Imazighen , ou seja, "homens livres"; singular #Amazigh ) referem-se ao conjunto de povos do Norte de África que falam línguas berberes, da família de línguas afro-asiáticas. Estima-se que existam entre 58 e 75 milhões de pessoas que falam estas línguas, principalmente em Marrocos e Argélia, mas também fazendo parte deste grupo os tuaregues, predominantemente nômades do Saara.
A cultura berbere continua viva na Argélia e no Marrocos, menos presente na Líbia e na Tunísia e em grande parte do Saara (tuaregues na Argélia, Burkina Faso, Líbia, Mali, Marrocos e Níger).
A imigração árabe e as invasões hilalianas reforçaram, ao menos nas regiões abertas, a arabização das tribos berberes cuja maioria renunciaria a seu nome antigo para se juntar a um clã árabe com mais prestígio. Outras tribos, no entanto, geralmente que habitavam as montanhas, como as tribos da Aurès e da Grande Kabilia, do Rif e do Atlas, apesar de serem muçulmanos e várias vezes reislamizados pelos marabutos, conservavam sua língua e seus costumes.
É deste grupo de pessoas que não aceitavam serem escravizados por idéias ou ideais corruptores como os apresentados por greco-romanos e pelos árabes muçulmanos que deriva a palavra latina "bárbaro" como sinônimo de ferocidade, brutalidade, truculência e violência. (Pq só quem conta história e escreve, é quem vence).
Os gregos chamavam de "bárbaros" qualquer não-falante da língua grega. Os romanos transformaram em sinônimo de violência, assim como fizeram com os Vândalos, um grande povo do norte da Europa.
Povo lindo e de resistência: isso é África.
