North Africa is a land unto itself, culturally and geographically distinct from the rest of the continent. Bordered around its top arc by the North Atlantic Ocean, Mediterranean Sea, and Red Sea, the region was isolated for millennia by the Sahara Desert to the south, an arid expanse the size of China. As a result, North Africa’s character was most influenced over the centuries by Arab culture and its indigenous Berber and Copt peoples.
