I agree. Geez and south arabian script are easily identifiable, same with sculptures. Someone should really look into it. The discovery an ancient indigenous somali civilization could have very huge political and social effects. Unfortunately somalis are generally not educated on their history especially pre-islamic history. The average somali doesn't know about Opone, Malao Sarapion etc and these things aren't really taught in school@BigShaq @Som You both should read this. It suggests these sculptures and writing tablets were unique to the region and were very different from the ones in southern Arabia and Ethiopia but rather they were a local flourishing in-land culture with buried cities. We need more archaeologists to discover these lost civilizations.
