From Alistair Boddy-Evans:
Welcome to African History at About.com. I believe history not only teaches us who we are, but enables us to appreciate our own heritage and that of others. This site explores the long and diverse history of the continent on which humans first evolved. If there's anything about the history of Africa that you'd like to know more about, email me and I'll research it.
