Well, to begin with.
Prehistoric Period
The Lebombo Bone
The first ever computing devises used are believed to be found around 35,000 BC.
Archeologists while excavating within the Border Cave in the Lebombo Mountains of Swaziland, discovered and important artifact. It was a small piece of the fibula bone, known as the Lebombo bone, you can guess where the name of the bone came from. It was named after the Lebombo Mountains.
This piece of fibula bone consisted of 29 distinct notches that were deliberately carved into a baboon’s fibula bone. The Lebombo bone is the oldest known mathematical artifact ever discovered.
There are no clear indications that they were used for computing at that period. It could be assumed that they may have been used in some sort of counting or to keep track of calendar. There are clear indications as the Lebombo bone resembles to the calendar sticks still used by Bushmen in Namibia.

I put the statements below in another thread, but I think it's important for it to be here as well.
This divide & conquer crap has to STOP. Plus, the AA "west Africa" thing is b.s.

_____

"No one will tell Africans which "part" of Africa.... they can & can't embrace. The divide & conquer ploys are OVER. Africans through the diaspora can and should embrace any and ALL things African.

_____

Fact is DNA genealogy tests on where AA's are suppose to be from in Africa e.g. "west Africa" is bogus and proven to be only 5% accurate of that much. I have the study. Pinpointing with even 50% accuracy where a group PPL. are from..... is painstakingly impossible.

2) Africans were taken throughout Africa and BROUGHT to the west coast of Africa. Bottom line....NO ONE can say for sure that ALL AA's are from "WEST Africa". The constant "AA's are from WEST Africa" is quite ERRONEOUS and is used to further DIVIDE Africans (throughout the diaspora).

YES, WEST Africa was a departure point, but it doesn't mean ALL AA's came from there. "

You are right. In Jamaica the Maroons are descended from Moors. We learned this years ago at school in Barbados. Many slaves came from North and Central Africa.

Since slaves were treated like cattle, no one can say for sure exactly which part of Africa all AA came from. EURONUTS should stop trying to divide Africa and start embracing the Caucasus, the home they NEVER talk about.

These and the other pics truly depict who Egyptians really were...as there still seems to be a debate in some circles as to whether the Kemets were Black.

My ancestors built Walata, while your ancestors lived in Celtic huts up untill Romans came along to enslave you'll, only recently you've learned to be non-illiterate, like 10 a.d. This was only the aristocrats. Commonly it's only like 1 century ago.
The city Djenno was 5* London. During a time you'll lived in your Celtic huts in the woods of Europe. I could go on for a long time, but you aren't wordy it.
I suppose you're a Soninke since they were responsible for Walate and Ancient Ghana. Correct me if I'm wrong please.

How idiotic, that you quote the same imperialists who screwed Africa and elsewhere... the heirs of Rome, Euroimperialists... and you think that Roman bigotry validates your idiotic racism. We could find the same quotes being made about black people.

Even the English said similar things about the Gaels.

It's all bigotry, the rationalizations of imperialist oppressors... whom you admire, apparently.

What an ignorant rat bastard you are, boy.

I think it is true that Egyptians are "mixed", whatever that is. Ancient Egyptian pictures composed by the Egyptians themselves show them as being black and white. Some times the white is the ruler or king. Some times the blacks are rulers or kings. It was never about skin color. There was range of complexions from black to white such as these:

Egypt is a crossroad. The Nile River's source is the heart of Africa. Plus, the Berbers have been in North Africa as far back as history can see. In more years white Europeans have come. Plus, Asians have had contact since the beginning of history. The important is Egypt is Africa. But it is not the only African country that has been :mixed" with just about every race in the world. All coastal Africans are about the same in this regard. For example, Somalis and Egyptians are about exactly the same in terms of race. The Somalis do not have Arabic as a mother tongue. But their Somali language is heavily influenced by Arabic, presumably from Egypt as well as from Yemen, etc. It is influenced to a lessor degree by Hindi and Dravidian and other Asian languages. Often Somalis are called Arabs like the Berbers are called Arabs. But Somali is not Arabic in the usual sense. However, most Somalis do read Arabic and speak it. In fact, Somalis probably contribute more to Islamic culture than anyone else. Many of Muhammad's (Peace and Blessings be upon him) descendants are Somalis. Egypt is the largest Arab country in the world. Yet it is indisputable that Egyptians are Africans and one of the largest African countries in the world also. That race thing concerning Egypt is about 99% nonsense meant to cause confusion. Those who know better such as Kwame Nkrumah have no issue along that line. Nkrumah married and Egyptian woman who like him was a Christian although she was very fair complexioned. Of their children, one lives in Egypt, and was married to an Egyptian, no doubt. They have children. My CPP Chairwoman Samia Nkrumah lives in Ghana but she speaks Arabic as well as Italian. Her son lives in Italy with his father most of the time. It is just not about race or skin color. I am the leader of the CPP in my region. I am "mixed" although relatively dark in complexion. All of my children are further "mixed". But none is as effed up as Obama. I raised them right. We are all Africans.
