The AskHistorians Podcast


Aug 14, 2015

Commustar gives co-host Jasfss a continent-wide, millenia-spanning overview of the development, influences, and functions of urban society in Africa. Starting in ancient Egypt and rolling down the coast and through time, the episode continues into the Horn of Africa, the Swahili Coast, Great Zimbabwe, and Ghana, before addressing the growing colonial influence of European states. The episode then doubles back to talk about Kongo, Kanem-Bornu, and the Hausa states.

This was fantastic! Hopefully, you will do podcasts on specific African regions, or specific African events, or specific African texts in the future.

This was great! Love from Ethiopia!
