CROSSROADS of empires : archaeology, material culture and sociopolitical relationships in West Africa

Units : Center of Cultural Anthropology | ULB415

Description :

The project brings together a team of archaeologists, historians and anthropologists studying the Niger Valley where it borders
Niger and Bénin (West Africa). We are hoping to shed more light on the people that inhabited the area in the past 1500 years and to
understand how population movements and craft techniques shaped the area's past.
