    Kumbi Saleh
    The Iron Age archaeological site of Kumbi Saleh was built by the west African Soninke society about AD 600, and was probably used as a capital city for the Ghana empire.
    The archaeological site of Tegdaoust is a Berber site in Mauritania, and probably represents the historical town called Awdaghost, a site on the crucial caravan trade network in Saharan Africa during the 9th century AD.

    Mauritania : Culture
    Mauritania's nineteenth century French colonizers envisioned the nation as a geographic and cultural bridge linking North Africa and West Africa. In the late 1980s, Mauritania bore little resemblance to this vision. Instead, it was a society undergoing profound transformation, torn between two cultural and linguistic traditions. The process of compelling nomads to settle that was begun by the colonial government earlier in the twentieth century was accelerated by the severe drought that began in the mid-1960s. For the next two decades, the rate of urbanization was unprecedented; Mauritania was transformed from a nomadic pastoral society to a predominantly urban one. Large pastoral populations were forced to leave land that could no longer support them. The already-overpopulated cities, almost all of which were located in the far south, were unprepared to obtain these displaced populations. In the late 1980s, ethnic tensions further contributed to an unstable social environment. Even the similarities that linked Maures with peoples of African descent were comparatively superficial. Religious unity within Islam, for example, masked wide differences in religious observances among Maures and blacks. Government officials hoped that the nation's rapid urbanization might increase social and cultural interaction and reduce prejudices, but most admitted that the task of developing a true national identity and a unified society promised to be long and difficult.

    CULTURE Moorish society is proud of its Arab and Muslim heritage. Theology, poetry, and music flourish. Goldsmithing is a fine art. Kewri societies have a rich and varied folklore. Mail, telephone, and telegraph services are combined in the main post offices. Fewer than 6,000 telephones are in use, and administrative contact is primarily through radiotelephone. International telephonic communications are run through Paris. The media are owned or controlled by the government. A national radio network broadcasts in the prevailing languages and in French. There are also two Earth satellite stations with telecasts in French and Arabic. A daily, Ach-chaab; a fortnightly, Journal Officiel; and a bimonthly, Le Peuple, are published in the two official languages. Movie theatres are found in the main urban centres, and cercles (social, sporting clubs) provide recreational opportunities in Nouakchott, Nouadhibou, and Rosso.

    Mauritania Society and Culture
    Contemporary Mauritania society and culture derives its sustenance from the Islamic religion. A majority of Mauritanian citizens belong to the Sunni sect of Islam.
    The Islamic Republic of Mauritania follows Islamic teachings in practical governance. The Sharia law is used in jurisprudence. The constitution of the West African country champions Islam as the only State religion. The present Mauritania society and culture bears a significant influence of Islam in its practical applications. The Mauritanian people follow the Maliki rite of the Sunni branch of Islam.
    The Islamic Republic of Mauritania has a thriving music culture. This is partly due to the region's Moorish past. Modern Mauritania has professional musicians who are paid to sing in public concerts and also at private parties. A number of musical instruments are used to compose music. The musical culture of Mauritania includes traditional musical instruments like the hourglass shaped four stringed tidinit. The tidinit is usually accompanied by an ardin. Percussion musical instruments used in composing Mauritanian music include the daghumma and tbal. The music is progressively played through five modes. Further submodes are present in Mauritanian musical culture. Music is played in public by both male and female musicians. Mauritanian culture exhibits a strong influence of the country's pre-Islamic cultural characteristics.

    Mauritania (Muritaniyyah in arabic), officially the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, is a country in northwest Africa. It is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the west, by Senegal on the south-west, by Mali on the east and south-east, by Algeria on the north-east, and by Moroccan-annexed territory of Western Sahara on the north-west. The capital and largest city is Nouakchott, located on the Atlantic coast. It is named after the ancient Berber kingdom of Mauretania. Most of Mauritania has a Saharan climate, being hot and windy with little or absolutely no rain. The strong desert winds appear in March and April. However, the coastal area has a milder climate, being relieved by pleasant sea-breezes. Daytime temperatures in the desert are usually above 38C (100F), but in the cooler season the daytime desert temperature can average around 24C (75F). Less then 100mm (4 in) of rain falls in the desert annually. In Nouakchott, Temperatures reach about 33C (92F) in the hottest months and average about 13C (56F) in the coolest month. The state of Mauritania has a constitution which establishes the country as an Islamic republic and decrees that Islam is the religion of its citizens and the State; the Government limits freedom of religion. Non-Muslim resident expatriates and a few non-Muslim citizens practice their religion openly with certain limitation on proselytization and transmission of religious materials. Relations between the Muslim community and the small non-Muslim community are generally amicable.
