What was the ancient name for Africa? ALKEBULAN

Posted by SUN-RE on June 12, 2012 at 4:55 PM

Although the Continent that we lovingly refer to as "Africa" went by various names by its' Ancient inhabitants, one of the most popular names for that Continent is "Alkebulan".

This name, ALKEBULAN was strategically changed over the years following through repetition, after the defeat of Ancient Alkebulan Military Strategist, Hannibal at the Battle of Zama, by the Roman warrior, Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus also known as Scipio Africanus, Scipio the Elder, and Africanus the Elder (236-183 BC), who was a general in the Second Punic war and statesman of the Roman Republic.

i) The ancient African civilization we call Ghana existed in West Africa between the Niger and the Senegal Rivers

ii) In 1928, archaeologists unearthed an amazing culture in the Nigerian village of Nok. We know very little about the ancient Nok culture of West Africa. We don't even know what they called themselves; we do know, however, that they uncovered the mysteries of iron.

iii) The European colonial powers called Africa "the Dark Continent" when they began their explorations. They saw it as a vast and dangerous place filled with savage people, but Africa has been home to many advanced, exotic civilizations. Many have been buried beneath the sands of time, but we know of others, and archaeologists continue to uncover more clues about ancient African civilizations.

Alkebulan - Definition


Did you know that the ancient name of Africa was Alkebulan? "Among the many names Alkebu-lan ["mother of mankind" or "garden of eden"] was called are the following: "Ethiopia, Corphye, Ortegia, Libya and Africa - the latest of all.


Alkebulan is the oldest and the only one of indigenous origin. It was used by the Moors, Nubians, Numidians, Khart-Haddans (Carthagenians), and Ethiopians. Africa, the current misnomer adopted by almost everyone today , was given to this continent by the ancient Greeks and Romans. "



Wouldn't this verify that We the descendants of Africa, aren't by definition africans? But rather ALKEBU-LAN OR BLACK BY DESIGN?
