The Egyptian-German archeological mission has realized an important discovery which proves that the ancient Egyptian had lived in the area currently known as the "Great Sea of Sands" in the southwest of Egypt, in the prehistoric period, or five thousands years ago; it had been a rainy area.
Dr. Gaballah Ali Gaballah, Chairman of the Supreme Council of Archeology said that the mission made three trips to the Western Desert "Galf Qabir" southwest Egypt near the junction of the borders of Sudan, Libya and Chad. For his part, Dr. Mohammed Al-Sagheer, head of the Egyptian Monuments Department said that the mission made an archeological survey around the "Mahariq" Plateau and the "Garah" Cave area, where it discovered several tools which had been used by the ancient Egyptian living, then, in those remote areas. The tools included granite pots, fireplaces and human and animal bones.
The mission delineated and defined the Cave with all its drawings and geometrical and decorative designs. In addition, the mission delineated the archeological site in the "Gararah" Valley and drafted a report to be submitted to Dr. Farouk Hosny, Minister of Culture in order to appropriate the budget necessary for the completion of the excavations in the area to find more data on this discovery.
