Eastern North of Somalia 3000B.C to A.D. 500---I am so Proud

Postby DamallaXagare » Sun Oct 16, 2005 9:49 am

I am so proud of this history. We were part of phareoh dynasties. Our features, dialect, and form of economy were similar to that of ancient egyptian history. Very Happy Today, i can claim my part of Egyptian civilization.


Enjoy it

In the northern part of the Eastern Horn, change of much less sweeping sorts characterized the end of the last millenium B.C and the first five centuries A.D.

The most notable external impact came through the growth of seagoing trade in the Red Sea. At the turn of the era, several significant trading emporia existed along the southern shores of the Gulf of Aden, the most significant of these being at Malao (present-day Berbera). Other commercial sites included Mundu (Modern Hais) and Mosyllon (Modern Elayu; or Ceelaayo). A good variety of of commodities were imported at these locations, such as clothing, drinking vessels, iron wares, and Roman coins. A lesser range of goods passed into the outward bound trade----mainly raw materials, in particular myrhh from Malao and frankincense from Mundu and Mosyllon. Tortoise shell also was a valued product of those coasts. (refer to Lionel Casson, The periplus Maris Erythraei Princeton)

Let me just change the name of the author (into Somali) of that piece of History and maybe you'll lower you head down and in the future You won't swallow down anything coming from a white man.

What's Malao ?
What's Mundu ?
What's Mosyllon?

Those names sounds Nigerian than Somalian!
No Berberaawi will call himself Malao!

BMX, Somalis aren't a newcomer . Are you saying we came from Arabs? Laughing We are ancient people and the history belong to us. Don't take it from us.


Walaahi, the author is not Somali. He is an anthropologist. If a Somali person is a learned anthrapologist why not, but this history can't be denied, reconstructed and it is all based on the archeological findings and ancient epigraphs. The works discovered were carefully studied and recorded.



Are you from Jubada Dhexe or Shabeelada Dhexe region?
