Les sources historiques disposent de l'iconographie égyptienne et des témoignages des auteurs gréco-Iatins. Les architectures funéraires sahariennes se comptent par milliers] mais malgré l'excellente étude réalisée sur celles du Sahara méridional (Niger) (F.Paris) et secondairement celles du Tassili des Ajjer celles-ci n'ont pas encore livré tout leur potentiel de connaissances, notamment sur le type anthropologique physique des anciens Berbères qui y ont été inhumés. Les sources paléo-anthropologiques ne sont certes pas négligeables dans la région du Maghreb où des nécropoles ont livré quelques centaines de squelettes entiers de Mechtoïdes (Hommes des sites éponymes de Mechta-Afalou, en Algérie) et de Pro méditerranéens Capsiens (Hommes du site éponyme de Gafsa,...

With conflicts raging on in Syria, Palestine, Yemen and Iraq and a diaphanous calm in the rest of the Middle East, the language we use in covering this region is not only hindering our understanding of the issues, but it is also misguiding strategic policies....
