Description

Debating the development of civilisation in Egypt and Greece, this collection of essays explores European misconceptions of African history. Featuring contributions from some of the top scholars in African American studies, this book analyses the inconsistencies erupting from academic and Eurocentric reports on ancient culture. For example, if the pyramids were built in 2800BC and Greek civilisation began around 700BC, how could the Greeks have contributed or taught Africans math and science? And if the Greeks built pyramids in Egypt, why did they not build a few in Greece? These questions and more are raised in this informative collection.
