African Crossroads: The Rise of States Around Lake Chad

When: Wed., Feb. 7, 6:30-8 p.m. 2018

This Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) lecture explores Lake Chad, a region of encounter between very different groups of people throughout prehistory, and that its political history is enormously complex. Today, the lands around Lake Chad are best known in the West for the activities of the Boko Haram terrorist organization. In this lecture, Dr. Scott MacEachern will attempt to provide an alternative view of an endlessly complex and fascinating part of our world.
