History of MARRUECOS

The current territory of Morocco has been populated since prehistoric times, at least since the year 8000 a. C. making it the oldest place where a skull of Homo sapiens was found according to the publication of the journal Nature in June of 2017.

North Africa and Morocco and Fez were slowly drawn into the Mediterranean world by exchange colonies and Phoenician settlements in the classical period. The arrival of the Phoenicians announced a long dominance in the Mediterranean, although this strategic region was part of the Roman Empire, known as Mauritania Tingitana. In the fifth century, when the Roman Empire fell, the region fell under the rule of Vandals, Visigoths and, later, under the Byzantine Empire in rapid succession. However, during this time, the territories of the high mountains remained under the control of the Berber inhabitants.
