Rock Art From Neolithic Period Got Discovered in Egypt

31 Mar 17

Rock art which establishes its link to Neolithic Period and Ancient Egyptian Culture has been excavated. Egyptologists dated back it to 4th millennium B.C.  and found it at a necropolis near Aswan in Egypt. Qubbet el-Hawa known as the hill of wind is the excavation site. Prof. Elmar Edel from the University of Bonn did investigations and documentations at necropolis from 1959 to 1984.

The art is in the form of small dots and depicts hunting scenes like found in Shamanic depictions. Scientists said that engravings on rock wall are Egyptian. Rest is pre-Egyptian in terms of iconography and stylistics. The images now are not easily perceivable. Closer inspection allows seeing a hunter with a bow, a dancing man with raised arms and between them an African ostrich. The Minister of Antiquities in Cairo presented the award to scientists who discovered it. This award is for one of the current ten most important archaeological discoveries in Egypt.
