Four epic journeys into ancient Africa’s art and culture

Ancient city @ Rome, Itlay 2011

Ancient Rome was a civilization that grew out of a small agricultural community founded on the Italian Peninsula as early as the 10th century BC. Located along the Mediterranean Sea and centered on the city of Rome, it expanded to one of the largest empires in the ancient world.

In its centuries of existence, Roman civilization shifted from a monarchy to an oligarchic republic to an increasingly autocratic empire. It came to dominate South-Western Europe, South-Eastern Europe and the Balkans, and the Mediterranean region through conquest and assimilation.

Plagued by internal instability and attacked by various migrating peoples, the western part of the empire, including Italy, Hispania, Gaul, Britannia and Africa broke up into independent kingdoms in the 5th century AD. This splintering is the landmark historians use to divide the ancient period from the medieval era and the "Dark Ages".

The Eastern Roman Empire survived this crisis and was governed from Constantinople after Diocletian divided the Empire in 286 AD. It comprised Greece, the Balkans, Asia Minor, Syria and Egypt. Despite the later loss of Syria and Egypt to the Arab-Islamic Empire, the Eastern Roman Empire continued for another millennium, until its remains were finally annexed by the emerging Turkish Ottoman Empire. This eastern, Christian, medieval stage of the empire is usually called the Byzantine Empire by historians.
Roman civilization is often grouped into "classical antiquity" with ancient Greece, a civilization that, along with the Etruscan civilization and the many other civilizations they conquered and assimilated, inspired much of the culture of ancient Rome. Ancient Rome contributed greatly to government, law, war, art, literature, architecture, technology, religion, and language in the Western world, and its history continues to have a major influence on the world today.

Asia or Africa?

Asia or Africa?

Back to my Madagascar series, I am going to show some of the differtent landscapes. Madagascar was ones connected to Africa and Asia. The landscape still shows the effects of the ancient red soils of Africa and the rice fields of Asia.

The rich habitat diversity and large number of endemic animals sets Madagascar apart. It is the kindom of lemurs and chameleons and it is every nature photographer's dream.

You will find al different kinds of lemurs (half apes) and lots of endemic spieces of animals, flowers and plants in Madagascar.

About 165 milion years ago, Madagascar split from Africa and drifted some 400 km off the east coast, separated by the Mozambique Channel. On the Island you will find a mix of Africans, Asians and Arabians. This racial mix is visible in the Malagassy's faces.

The island is dominated by highlands and rainforest. The highly weathered lateritic soil gives Madagascar the name " Red Island"

Madagascar's fauna and flora have evolved partly because it is an isolated island, but also because it originated as a continental fragment. 70 to 80% of the flora and fauna are endemic, meaning you will not find this anywhere else in the world. The lemur species and chameleons are the most famous.

Take a journey through my Madagascar set to discover some of Madagascars special nature and wildlife.
