#EarthDay: The Mandara Mountains of Rumsiki, Cameroon (1989).
Rumsiki is a village in the Far North Province of Cameroon, located in the Mandara Mountains region - 3km from the north-eastern Nigerian border.
Home mostly to the Kapsiki people, due to its breathtaking natural scenery the village of Rumsiki has become a popular tourist attraction - mostly Westerners - where children in the village are known to act as tour guides and several pre-arranged attractions are put together for the benefit of these ‘visitors’. For this very reason, the village has unfortunately turned in to a tourist trap where most of the villagers lives and incomes are centered around these foreigners who ‘visit’ their home.
European archaeologists have found eight coins portraying Hannibal’s Carthaginian features. The coins do not resemble each other. Of the eight coins, only five coins are not recognized by European archeologists and historians. The five coins not recognized portray Hannibal with strong West African ethnic features.Analysis of the coins found in Italy, near the battle site of Lake Trasimene where Hannibal’s Carthaginian Army defeated the Romans, shows an African man on one side with the characteristic strong African features such as curly hair, thick lips, and full nose; on the coin’s opposite side shows an elephant. All the black African looking coins have been carbon dated around the time that Hannibal was alive, but the Semitic looking coins are dated roughly a century or more after Hannibal’s death.The carbon dating of the coin is 217 BCE. Since the coin’s male image is shown in the way Apollo, the Roman and Greek sun god, was depicted, indicates that he wasn’t a common warrior riding a war elephant, but he was a high ranking military commander. This coin is the best representation of Hannibal. The coin was found near Lake Trasimene where Hannibal defeated the Romans, this fact offers good confirmation that coin’s image resembled Hannibal’s real ethnic appearance because one of way of celebrating a victory in ancient warfare was to have a coin minted in your honor and showing yourself as your enemy’s deity. This act would have an incredibly psychological impact on the surrounding Roman population in those days.
Okay,8 coins and 5 of the coins show an obvious African man or Nubian,etc carbon test date them to him and European archeologist only confirm the 3 that do not look like an African as Hannibal,get the fuck outtah’ here!
Hannibal Barca’s Ethnicity
A growing number of professional military historians believe that Hannibal Barca was a dark skin ethnically mixed Numidian warrior. Carthage was a mixture of indigenous black Africans, Berber tribesmen, Semitic Arabs, white Celtic Germanic warriors, Greek sojourners, and white Libyan tribesmen that existed when many Phoenician cities and colonies decorated North Africa. Although the Carthaginian government was primarily semitic and phoenian, the Carthaginian military was dominated by Numidians, which was a mixture of a black Africans, Nubians, and Berber extract that lived among the Carthaginians and who were prevalent in Egypt, Morocco, Algeria and elsewhere throughout North Africa. The Barca family originated from the celebrated Numidian warriors.
