      Historically, witchcraft in Africa has not comprised a stable or uniform set of beliefs.

This chapter explores the history of state formation in Nigeria before the colonial era. It explores the various forms that statehood took and the many different factors which influenced how and when states emerged. The chapter examines the importance of geography and its role in decentralized states, the transition to agriculture and the emergence of the Nok culture, Author: Nonso Obikili.

The continent of Africa cannot be discussed without mentioning its historical trade and trading activities. Trade has been and is still an integral part of the people of the land dating back to pre-colonial times and even to the period of medieval : Alberta O. Akrong.
