Having waved goodbye to colleagues and friends we thank everyone for an enjoyable and productive African Archaeology Research Day, and look forward to the next one, in Bristol, with 2015 in Stirling.
We are a team of archaeologists, historians and anthropologists studying the Niger Valley where it borders Niger and Bénin (West Africa). We are carrying out new excavations and research to shed more light on the people that inhabited the area in the past 1500 years.
This blog will tell you all about it.
