Bringing the Past to Print: Archaeology for and by West African Scholars

- Writing Workshops 2019
In the past decade, important archaeological research by West African researchers has significantly improved our understanding of precolonial societies and their achievements. However, such data have not yet made it to published form, largely because their authors, some now in academic posts, lack the networks and knowledge to key into international journals. This workshop, to be held at Université Abomey Calavi in Bénin (ex-Dahomey) in June and followed up in July in Accra, Ghana, will support the development of eight early career scholars in archaeology and related fields.
