These nomads were forced to start a new life in permanent settlements that necessitated the origins and development of civilization that fostered the growth of great cultural lifestyles and kingdoms that flourished for many centuries thereafter. The Sahara covers one-third of Africa, with approximately 3,500,000 square miles (9,065,000 square kilometers).
