Chad’s Ennedi Mountains Expedition

In November 2016, TARA's David Coulson led an expedition to Chad's Ennedi Mountains (Sahara) to document a little and unknown rock art site in this remote 17,000 sq mile wilderness.

The expedition was supported by the US Ambassador’s Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP) and was a collaboration between TARA and the Factum Arte Foundation of Madrid who are experts in 3 dimensional recording of art.

This was TARA's third expedition to the Ennedi. The first visit took place in 1996. During this last trip the team was able to record a number of new and, in some cases, ancient art, some of it at least 7,000 years old.
