Your pictures of Kano actually reminded me of something, although despite being in one of the more influential Hausa cities, it's flip-flopped between being controlled by the Songhai and Kanem-Bornu. Later on the Fulani conquered it. Kano just couldn't catch a break. I wonder how much better off Hausaland would have been if it wasn't stuck between two expansionist empires.

This is probably my favorite thread on historium, it's a great little archive of the various types of African architecture, I must've viewed it too many times to count.

Man those Nubian pyramid pictures take me back...


They need to film a mummy movie in which the nubian emperor taharqa reawakens from his tomb and wreaks havoc on the world.

Also, is that guy being attacked by a gust of sand? He looks shocked.lol

Timbuktu in Africa | Commercial center of Africa 500 years ago


Did you know that this is a real populated area in Mali, Africa? Located in front of the great Sahara desert and synonymous with remoteness, exoticism and mystery, it was the intellectual heart, the cultural and commercial center of Africa 500 years ago.
