Good condition in softcover.

The iron industry is a benchmark of civilization and is underpinned by a whole body of tried and tested concepts. Until recently sub-Saharan Africa was regarded as a mere recipient of this technology which was supposed to have come from the Middle East by way of North Africa and the Valley of the Nile. The book's major thesis is that the theory that sub-Saharan Africa borrowed its iron technology from other cultures is no longer tenable. Book No: 2500960
