Madagascar: unique rock paintings discovered on the island reveal its incredible ancient history

The analyzes carried out in this new cave, the results of which are shared by the researchers in The Conversation on December 12, 2023, are therefore particularly instructive. They reveal, in particular, Madagascar’s ancestral relations with the Egyptian, Ethiopian and Afro-Arab worlds, as well as with the immense island of Borneo.
