About the Authors
  • Central Africa holds a special position in archaeological circles for the information it can supply on prehistory and the development of early humanity. Originally published in 1939, this book presents the results of an eighteen-month study by O'Brien into the prehistory of Uganda. The text is illustrated with line drawings and photographs of stone hand axes from the various cultures who inhabited the region. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in prehistory and Stone Age cultures.
