  1. According to Dr. Millicent S. Tsjuckenjammer, Ph D’s authoritative ‘History of the Sahara Explorers, 1546-1678’ that was published by The Best of Anthropology 1978 Review ( now out of print), Scotto Morgani was reportedly traveling by camel with a merchant caravan via the Old Silk Road in 1601. Little is known about Morgani’s trip except that he completed a portrait of Sheik Abdullah Homestor Khan that now is part of a private collection in Luxembourg.
