Sudan: Sebu Petroglyphs

Sebu Petroglyphs, also know as Sebu-Jaddi Rock Art Site is an area of blinder with around 1600 drawings spanning a vast 6000 years of history. Some petroglyphs are simple and crude, while others are very elaborate. There are many wild animals depicted on the rocks that are now extinct in the area, like giraffes and elephants and lions. There are also many drawings of big horn cattle, many people, and even boats crossing the River Nile. The dry desert climate amazingly preserved all these in a very good condition. But the proposed Kajbar Electric Power Station and dambing of the Nile is supposed to flood the area and bury the petroglyphs forever.
