The Sahara has numerous graves from the Neolithic period. In most cases, these tombs are sepulchers covered by mounds of stones. In particular, the burial enclosures known as keyhole tombs are quite common. The mounds, which were built by the ancient populations that lived in what once was a “Green Sahara”, are visible in the satellite images of Google Maps. In particular, due to a high enough resolution, we can see some of the mounds of the regions of Tassili and Amguid in Algeria.
