Egypt and North Africa are here considered in their African context, together with a comprehensive discussion of West, East, Central and Southern Africa, to provide a continent-wide survey of human development in Africa. The relevance of archaeological research to understanding today's Africa is stressed, as is the contribution Africa has made to the human cultural heritage.
