National Geographic Niger Tenere Desert Graves Next to Ancient Lake in Sahara Desert Field Studies by Paul Sereno of the Universtiy of Chicago and Chris Stojanowski of Arizona State University Indicate Compelling Evidence of Sudden Desertification of Sahara Desert from Lacustrine Environment of Bronze Age Ipuwer Papyrus Record Proves Disasterous Dessication of Paleodrainages of North Africa Sahara Desert Bronze Age Drying

Remarkable ancient graves have been discovered in one of the driest places on earth, the Tenere Desert of northern Niger (part of the greater Sahara Desert) was once a land of huge shallow lakes and interconnceting streams, and along the shores of one of those lakes (now desert) are the graves of the some of the settlers there, who carved ivory arm-bracelets, harpooned huge perch out of the marshy lake, and hunted hippopotamus along its shoreline, a completely different environment then, according to archaeologists Paul Sereno of the University of Chicago and Chris Stojanowski of Arizona State Universtiy, at around 4000 B.C., putting the settlers there within the bronze age.

But with the Ice Age having ended according to the mainstream scientists’ timeframe circa 10000 B.C., the end of the Ice Age snowfall cessation would have been at the same time that the rains in the middle lattitudes greatly lessened too, then causing the great deserts of the world such as the Sahara, at the same time that the Ice Age icepacks were melting, for sea level to rise a few hundred feet, submerging 25 millions square miles of land (see Category Submerged Ancient Ruins).

However, since they say it was still wet there in what now is the Sahara circa 4000 B.C., they are actually and rightly moving up the end of the Ice Age to much closer to the accurate timeframe, which is demonstrated with the Ipuwer Papyrus of Egypt, written in the time of Ramses III, when Egypt too was turning to desert, Ramses III having lived circa 1400 B.C., around the time of the Exodus of the Jews out of Egypt, the catastrophic drying of Egypt and anarchy which insued described in the Ipuwer Papyrus in great detail, proof positive that the Ice Age actually began to end circa 1500 B.C., as a ton of evidence, such as the graves in the now desert of Niger, plainly indicate.
