Archaeological deep history and dynamics of Mediterranean Africa
ca. 9600-700BC

MedAfrica project sets out to produce the first up-to-date, comprehensive, problematised synthesis and interpretation for a generation of what can be established about long-term social and economic dynamics on the African flank of the Mediterranean between the end of the last glacial (ca. 9600BC) and the arrival of Phoenicians and Greeks (variably 800-600BC), and to identify major factors shaping the patterns detected.

The project is based at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, University of Cambridge, and is funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
