From 8,000 to 3,500 BCE, the Saharan desert was known to have been savanah.

A black african mummy was found in the Uan Muhuggiag region of Libya that was dated to 5,500 BCE, which predates the contemporary Egyptian mummies that we know now.

As the Sahara's climate turned back to what we see today, is it plausable that the cattle-herder culture that was developing this mummification technique receded to the Nile valley with whichever culture was existing there to merge together into the Egyptians?

Or did the techniques develope seperately and unknown to each other and the black African recede to the south as the Egyptian culture took root?
