This is the First Book devoted to the archaeology of African life on both sides of the Atlantic and highlights the importance of archaeology in completing the historical records of the Atlantic world's Africans. Archaeology of Atlantic Africa and the African Diaspora presents a diverse, richly textured picture of Africans' experiences during the era of the Atlantic slave trade and offers the most comprehensive explanation of how African lives became entangled with the creation of the modern world. Through interdisciplinary approaches to material culture, the dynamics of a comparative transatlantic archaeology is developed.
Should be required reading for Africanist archaeologists and students of African American and diasporic archaeology. Summing Up: Highly recommended.
