Mapping Ancient Africa: Participants

The kick-off meeting of the Mapping Ancient Africa project was attended by 44 scientists around the world online and at regional hubs.

Original team

The application to INQUA for the funding to conduct the Mapping Ancient Africa project was supported by 23 scientists from around the world who provid expertise in a wide range of areas (listed below). However, this is not an exclusive list and we hope that during the project we will be joined by many additional researchers who are interested to contribute. So if you are interested to contribute to the project please get in touch.
