Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
The main aim of this study is to examine the methods through which the managers of Nigeria's past have presented the country's heritage to the Nigerian public, how effectively this has been done, and how the current situation can be improved by 'marketing' archaeology to the public. The book's nine sections cover an examination of those institutions responsible for Nigeria's past, an ethnohistory of the Igbo, a review of the archaeological discoveries, conclusions and suggestions.
