Inhaltsangabe: This book provides a concise and up-to-date authoritative survey of the archaeology of Africa, from the origin of mankind until the last few centuries. Written in non-technical language, it is fully illustrated with photographs, maps and line drawings, and it has a comprehensive bibliography. Egypt and North Africa are here considered in their African context, together with a comprehensive discussion of West, East, Central and Southern Africa, to provide a continent-wide survey of human development in Africa. The relevance of archaeological research to understanding today's Africa is stressed, as is the contribution Africa has made to the human cultural heritage. This book will be of appeal to all who are interested in the past of the African peoples.
Rezension: ' ? an important updated summary and synthesis of our knowledge of Africa's distant past and Phillipson deserves to be congratulated for this undertaking. It provides a ready and readable reference source for students and the layman interested in the archaeology and prehistory of Africa ? Phillipson's important achievement here is to bring together as much of the research material as possible into a single book, accompanying this with his own interpretation of the various types of evidence based on his long experience in research and writing in African archaeology.' Journal of African Archaeology
