An artist's impression of ancient desert warfare in northern Africa, in this case depicting the Kushite army doing battle with the Masaesyli. The kingdom of Kush, situated in northern Africa, flourished between c. 1069 BCE and 350 CE, while the Masaesyli were the original inhabitants of the western part of the North African Berber kingdom of Numidia (202-40 BCE). The portrayed clash is not based on any historical battle. (From the PC game Total War: Rome II - Desert Kingdoms by the Creative Assembly)
