Category: Guide to Africa

Africa is one of the earliest birthplaces of human civilization. It has a long history and rich cultural heritage. It gave birth to the world’s most ancient civilization – Egypt. After Egypt, north Africa gradually became Carthage, Greece and Rome. In the Middle Ages, Africa survived through agriculture, animal husbandry and a high level of commercial development. After the Middle Ages, many kingdoms were established in the Niger River and Senegal River Basin. In the 15th century, it was invaded by western colonialists, who started the slave trade and plundered the wealth of the land. After World War II, national independence surged in Africa and most colonies became independent. Africa is divided into five regions, which are Northern Africa, West Africa, Central Africa, Eastern Africa and Southern Africa.
