Narrative: At length we descended from the rugged ground of Taghist into the commencement of the celebrated Valley of Auderas, the fame of which penetrated to Europe many years ago. Here we encamped, wet as we were, on the slope of the rocky ground, in order to guard against the humidity of the valley. Opposite to us, towards the south, on the top of a hill, lay the little village Aerwen wan Tidrak. Another village, called Ifarghen, is situated higher up the valley on the road from Auderas to Damerghu. On our return I saw in this valley 9, barbarous mode of tillage, three slaves being yoked to a sort of plough, and driven like oxen by their master. This is probably the most southern place in Central Africa where the plough is used; for all over Sudan the hoe is the only instrument used for preparing the ground.
