Abstract:This paper examines the state of knowledge of Stone Age archaeology in Nigeria. An in-depth recapitulation of the different periods, from the Early Stone Age to the Neolithic, was carried out. The controversies and the problems confronting researchers, such as the absence of dateable material, were also highlighted. Furthermore, evidence from other regions, such as southern and eastern Africa, were juxtaposed with evidence from Nigeria for a better understanding of the situation. In order to situate Nigerian archaeology in a global context, terminologies were also examined and discussed. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract]
