Distant and deep, the history of the Mauritania is marked from great passages of civilizations.
Mauritania, daughter of the Sahara and pivotal point linking Mediterranean Africa with black Africa, is a country with a proud and memorable past, where Mauritania represented a civilisation in all effects; understanding and dynamic, fearlessly embracing different races and traditions and thriving on that wonderful energy that diversity itself can afford.
In order to best understand this complex universe, to bring to life those civilisations, empires and towns that were beacons in the ancient and medieval world, we have to go back in time and decipher a story which takes us far back to the beginnings of human activity - to the often uncertain horizons of the Neolithic period.
