Douiret - Decoration on a berber house
Douiret (Arabic: ???????) is a ruined Berber village in the Tataouine district in southern Tunisia. Located on a hilltop near a modern village of the same name, Douiret was a fortified granary, or ksar. Like other ksour created by North African Berber communities, Douiret was built on a hilltop to help protect it from raiding parties. Douiret is a regular stop on southern Tunisia's ksar trail, along with the villages of Chenini, Ksar Ouled Soltane and Ksar Hadada. The ancestry of Douiret is believed to be traced back to a founding father with the name of Ghazi Ben Douaieb Bou Kenana, who migrated to the region more than 600 years ago – possibly coming from the Moroccan region of Tafilalet (Louis, A. 1975. Douiret: Etrange Cite Berbere. Societe Tunisienne de Diffusion, Tunis). In 1850, Douiret population was around 3500 inhabitants. It has been an important caravan stop between Gabes to the north and the Libyan city of Ghdames to the south. In 1882, Douiret was chosen temporarily by colonial France as the center for its military administrative authority in the southern part of Tunisia before abandoning it in favor of Tataouine soon after that. In the 20th century, Douiret had seen its population progressively decrease as many of its inhabitants migrated mainly to the Tunisian capitol Tunis. By the close of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century, the old village of Douiret has virtually transformed into a gost town in ruins as the few remaining families opted to move to the new village of Douiret built at the mountain foothills not far from their ancestors' historic site.

Zimbabwe rock art hol0118 The Hill Complex
The party exploring the Hill Complex - I think this is part of the Western Enclosure. Note the way that the boulders and dry stone walls are integrated. The western wall, with its solid stone conical cairns/turrets, monolith decorations, stone lintelled entrance is also the largest wall, with the finest architectural detailing. A secondary stairway and entrance on the opposite side of the Western Enclosure, the Water Gate Ascent, probably led to the home of the ‘Ritual Sister’ in the Cleft Rock enclosure. Huffman believes that the Western Enclosure was probably organized like a typical house, only on a much grander scale – with a sanctuary–type platform chikuva dominating the back of the area (which originally included at least three plain monoliths and three highly decorated beams - Bent 1896). One beam was covered with bands of excised diamond motifs with small circles in the centre, a pattern representing crocodiles in Shona art. Decorative stonework, where triangular edges of stone are set on top of each other to form dentate ridges, also suggests the back of a crocodile. One soapstone stone bird was directly associated with this sanctuary where the king probably petitioned his ancestor spirits for his personal welfare. Few daga structures remain as part of the Hill Complex, but Carl Mauch noted molded daga platforms in the western enclosure in the late nineteenth century. The daga deposits were disturbed and excavated in 1915 – a hut floor with a circular pot stand, fireplace and raised bench was found.
