Africa Encountered : European Contacts and Evidence, 1450-1700, Hardback Book

Africa Encountered : European Contacts and Evidence, 1450-1700 Hardback

Part of the Variorum Collected Studies series

Description

Professor Hair's aim here has been to explore the European written record for the history of Africa south of the Sahara.

This effectively began with the arrival of the Portuguese on the Guinea coast and many of these articles focus on Sierra Leone; others extend the enquiry to southern Africa.

One particular theme is the use of early vocabularies of African languages as a source for the history of local populations.

At the same time, these studies help illuminate the European reaction to the peoples and the places they encountered.
