HIS 206 - Africa to 1800

2010-2011 Catalog Year

This course surveys the history of selected regions of Africa from about the eighth to the early nineteenth century. Students are introduced to some of the most important sub- Saharan states and their cultures through the three basic sources for sub-Saharan African history before European influence: Oral tradition, archaeology, and Arabic chronicles. We explore the environmental and economic circumstances that account for the rise of these states, we proceed to acquaintance with their people, accomplishments and contributions, and we encounter the main factors involved in means of understanding major historical events.
