From the exodus of early modern humans to the growth of African diasporas, Africa has had a long and complex relationship with the outside world. More than a passive vessel manipulated by external empires, the African experience has been a complex mix of internal geographic, environmental, sociopolitical and economic factors, and regular interaction with outsiders. Peter Mitchell attempts to outline these factors over the long period of modern human history, to find their commonalities and development over time.

This volume presents the results of archaeological research at the Mare de Kissi in the years 1996 to 2001. The investigated archaeological sites are located in the hinterland of the eastern Niger bend in the extreme northeast of Burkina Faso, on the edge of a small lake, the Mare de Kissi. The sites of Kissi comprise about 60 anthropogenic mounds, numerous stone structures and several cemeteries. The location was occupied by sedentary Iron Age farmers from the late 1st millennium BC up to the ca. 13th century AD, when it was finally abandoned. Excavations in both settlement and cemetery areas provided an exceptional inventory of finds and the basis for a reconstruction of the settlement history at the Mare de Kissi.

Africa has the longest and arguably the most diverse archaeological record of any of the continents. It is where the human lineage first evolved and from where Homo sapiens spread across the rest of the world. Later, it witnessed novel experiments in food-production and unique trajectories to urbanism and the organisation of large communities that were not always structured along strictly hierarchical lines. Millennia of engagement with societies in other parts of the world confirm Africa's active participation in the construction of the modern world, while the richness of its history, ethnography, and linguistics provide unusually powerful opportunities for constructing interdisciplinary narratives of Africa's past. This Handbook provides a comprehensive and up-to-date synthesis of African archaeology, covering the entirety of the continent's past from the beginnings of human evolution to the archaeological legacy of European colonialism. As well as covering almost all periods and regions of the continent, it includes a mixture of key methodological and theoretical issues and debates, and situates the subject's contemporary practice within the discipline's history and the infrastructural challenges now facing its practitioners. Bringing together essays on all these themes from over seventy contributors, many of them living and working in Africa, it offers a highly accessible, contemporary account of the subject for use by scholars and students of not only archaeology, but also history, anthropology, and other disciplines.
