Augustin F.C. Holl
This work contains a thorough review of important archaeological sites on the Chadian Plain, including Houlouf, which the author excavated 1980–1990. Other sites discussed are Deguesse, Krenak, Hamei, Blé Mound Complex; Yaere sites Mishiskwa and Madaf; and others. Holl examines the rise and fall of the Houlouf chiefdom, patterns of Holocene Late Stone Age colonization, diachonic trends, paleoclimatology, and historical linguistic evidence for this little-studied area of northern Africa.
