AFRICA

 The African continent may be divided into two major regions, which roughly represent the north and the south. In the south, major concentrations from Kenya and Tanzania, down to Johannesburg in South Africa. 

 In northern Africa most major concentrations are located in the central Sahara region. Some are well known and publicized, such as the Tassili'n'Ajjer in Algeria, and the Fezzan and the Acacus in Libya. Some of these sites we will find in this exhibition.
