The Sahara is also the site of the earliest new Stone Age (or neolithic) culture to have been discovered in Africa.

The remains from their settlements reveal that they are skilful potters.

They gradually push ahead of them the Khoisan, in a process which will eventually make the Bantu masters of nearly all the southern part of the continent.

Meanwhile, in the regions immediately south of the desert, the first great kingdoms of sub-Saharan Africa become established during the first millennium AD.

There may perhaps be a link, in the migration eastwards of the Sahara people, but archaeology has found no evidence of it.
