The ‘Islamic contact’ period, in Shaw’s terminology, was followed by a ‘coastal contact’ and then by an ‘inland contact’ period in the years from 1475 onwards. He expects that during this time archaeology will only ‘occasionally’ have much to contribute. But even here, as Wesler has shown, it may have ‘exciting potential’, since the opportunity exists to merge ‘traditionally disparate data and methodologies’ to gain a coherent picture of a ‘society in transition’. 7. Conclusions. There is no lack of theoretical issues relevant to ‘mainstream’ archaeology in the study of West Africa’s past, and nor are these of the ‘dry as dust’ variety.

Although the very earliest LSA assemblages are amorphous, quartzdominated microlithic occurrences, between 19,000 and 12,000 BP the systematic production of unretouched bladelets from highly distinctive bladelet cores distinguishes Robberg assemblages, which are found across South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland. These bladelets were used in a diverse range of tasks as the cutting edges of composite artefacts; those formally retouched tools (scrapers, adzes, backed microliths) that do occur are always rare.

18 AFRICA The shea butter tree (Butyrospermum paradoxum) is important today in the savanna area, and although the incense tree (Canarium schweinfurthii) is now less well known, it was in the past obviously much appreciated, since it has been found with Elaeis at Bosumpra, Kintampo, and Obobogo, and at the first of these sites a process can be discerned whereby Elaeis gradually displaced it. Cowpeas (Vigna unguiculata) may also have been present at Kintampo, and here as elsewhere including Amekni there was obviously much gathering of useful if non-domesticated plants such as the African nettle tree (Celtis integrifolia).
