The archaeological record has revealed the advent of the Atlantic trade, including the traffic in enslaved Africans, as a period of dramatic change in West Africa. This period witnessed initial European contact, trade, and eventual colonization, the collapse and expansion of indigenous African states, and the emergence of anti-colonial Islamic African polities. Archaeology provides unique information-in many instances the only information-for the changes that occurred.

The slave trade regularly used the triangular trade route and its Middle Passage, and existed from the 16th to the 19th centuries.

This volume surveys archaeological data from West Africa, examining sites from the Senegambia to the Cameroon. The focus is on the archaeological record of the past 500 years, a period that witnessed dramatic transformations in African political and social systems, as well as the consequences of European expansion, the advent of the Atlantic slave trave, and the expansion of Islamic polities in the West African Sahel. While historians have examined many aspects of this period, the written record provides only limited insight into the history and development of many areas. Archaeology has the potential to provide unique information not accessible through documentary records or oral traditions. Thus, the material record offers the most valuable means of evaluating both change and continuity in African societies over the past 500 years.The geographical and topical scope of this volume is extremely timely. Historical archaeology, particularly aspects dealing with European interactions with indigenous populations, is an area that has received increasing attention over the past decade. There has also been a growing interest in studies of Africa and the African diaspora. This volume, the first to draw together archaeological syntheses of various parts of West Africa, will be an important resource for West Africanists and all researchers interested in the indigenous response to European expansion, as well as for those examining African continuitites in the Americas.
