African archaeology

David W. Phillipson

The author has expanded and updated his 1985 survey of the archaeology of Africa in a lucid, fully illustrated account of the origins of humanity to the time of European colonisation. Egypt and North Africa are considered in their African context, together with a comprehensive discussion of West, East, Central and Southern Africa. The book demonstrates the relevance of archaeological research to an understanding of Africa today, and stresses the country's contribution to the human cultural heritage. The book will appeal to all who are interested in the past of the African peoples. To archaeologists, historians, and students in the field, it presents an accessible and authoritative survey.
