Abstract:This article outlines recent developments In the archaeology of North Africa, and how views have evolved In the four. years since the previous survey (A.E. CLOSE, 'Current research and recent radiocarbon dates from Northern Africa', J. Afr. Hist., 21 (1980), 2, p. 145/167). The principal changes are that In eastern North Africa sites have been found which fall between the Middle and Late Palaeolithic? further evidence Is available from the eastern and central Sahara that cattle may have been domesticated In North Africa at least as early as anywhere else In the world; and there Is enough evidence now to have a picture of the complex series of local adaptations developed by Neolithic groups along the extreme western edge of the Sahara.
