Somaliland: Las Geel Prehistoric Cave Art

Las GEEL rock art of Somaliland

Somalilandsun- Discovered in 2005 by a French archaeologist, Las Geel is suddenly one of the world’s greatest prehistoric art sites. And it’s open to the public.

The cave paintings date from the Neolithic era, some 5000 years ago. And the art is in stunning condition, particularly since it’s in open air. The colors remain vivid.

Las Geel, in Somali, means “Camels Waterhole”, and is named after two rivers below the caves that once merged (but have since run dry).  Narrates  Michael Robert Powell in a piece Titled Las Geel Prehistoric Cave Art-Somaliland
