This text offers in a single volume an introduction to classical African history, primary in the period before 1800, with a focus on the great ancient African civilizations. The author draws upon the most recently available information on the history of Africa, including theories of the earliest evolution of humankind. The text then explores the beginnings of African farming when the Sahara was still an open savannah with green pastures and flowing rivers and moves the reader through the ancient kingdoms of Nubia, Meroe, Axum, the medieval Sudanic empires of Ghana, Mali, and Songhai, and on to the development and spread of Islam throughout southern Africa, east Africa, the Kongo and the forest states. It concludes with an exploration of the transatlantic slave trade.
