1. Herodotus, Greek Historian, mentioned the Garamantes only once (IV:183) and described them as pursuing shrieking black Pygmies in their chariots drawn by horses.
2. The Garamantes lived in the south of Libya in the Fezzan and are considered by all respected scholars as the direct ancestors of the eastern Tuaregs of the Sahara and Niger.
3. These people call themselves in Tamacheq, the Tuareg form of Tamazight, the Berber language, "izzagaren" that is "red skins." In regards to the Garamantes, the Berber scholars have said that they were of darker skins, distinct from Sudanese Negroes, and white Mediterraneans both.
4. The Italian anthropolologist Sergi established the following proportions of prehistoric skulls in the Fezzan: 46.6.% of white mediterranean, 26.6% of "Eurafrican negroized" and 26.6% of Negroes.
5. Marie-Claude Chamla established that the protohistoric remains of the Sahara were only about 25% Negro. The mixed type which corresponds to the "Negroized Eurafrican" type of Sergi was about 20% and "Eurafricans" who were not negroized represent 41 % of the results.
6. The Mechtoid type (which those European scholars refer to as Euroafricans) is a specific type of human being found in North Africa from the Mediterranean coast, along the Atlantic ocean all the way to Mali and in the Sahara. It is called "
Mechtoid" from remains found at Mekta El Arbi near Constantine. This mechtoid type is neither Negroid nor Caucasoid (neither black nor white) It is indigenous to North Africa with remains older than 10,000 years. Numerous specimens have been identified, and mroe recently genetic studies have confirmed what archeology determined.
