AGAI, Jock M.. An archaeological search for the emergence of early humans in West Africa. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2014, vol.70, n.1, pp.1-7. ISSN 2072-8050.
Fossils of early humans and their ancestors dating back to millions of years have not yet been found in West Africa. Tools made of bones, stones, and wood suggesting use by early humans or their ancestors have however been found in some parts of West Africa. This research investigates the possible origins and West African indigenous influences on the manufacture and use of these tools. The purpose of this research is to stimulate interest into the study of West African archaeology and palaeontology.
