Trois époques de gravure rupestre en Adrar des Iforas (Mali)

Abstract : The analysis of the themes, styles and superpositions of Adrar des Iforas rock art leads to the identification of : a) an early era during which taurine breeding was practiced, and pluviosity was sufficient for the survival of large wild animals ; b) an era dating back to the last two millenia BC characterised by the transmission of ideas, and luxury articles over great distances, and by the accentuation of social differences ; c) an era bearing witness to the installation, around the Ve century AD, of an aristocratic society of horse and camel breeders, who are the ancestors of the Tuaregs.
