Caption: Rock painting, Algerian Sahara. The variation in climate in North Africa over the past 12,000 years has had a profound effect on human occupation and subsistence. During wet periods, life flourished in what is now desert. Thousands of neolithic carvings and rock paintings reflect this change in climate and human habitation. Photographed in Tassili n'Ajjer National Park, Algeria.
