Dear Josť,

The problem of rock engravings is always, that you do not know the age, when you have no other finds associated with the pictures.

But it is interesting that especially in the north western part of Africa, the ancient "Libya", having been according to Plato under the rule of the kings of Atlantis, we find so many rock engravings of chariots with horses. Hofmann wrote in his paper for the Milos Conference, that more than 300 paintings and engravings of chariots have been discovered in this area. Till today no scholar has explained these numerous chariot paintings. The area where these paintings were found is 2000 km in the extension north-south and 2500 km in the extension east-west, all over the modern states Morocco, Algeria, Mauretania, Libya and the northern parts of Mali, Niger and Chad. He writes: "There must have been numerous chariots, and there also must have existed a high degree of organization to enable the use of an animal that cannot adapt to dryness."
