I have no idea what you're talking about. Metallurgy? I expressed the opinion that W African ironworking was of indigenous origin, since it occurred too early for it to have been learned from Phoenicians, as some propose.<quoted text>
WHICH HE/ SHE IS TRYING TO MAKE INTO EURASIA. A CACASOID THING.
In fact the complete opposite happens, that bozo implies surprimacy over Africans. And this goes on multiple levels. A exposure was when Big Mike mentioned Walata and metallurgy, and the bozo quickly tried rip off this history. When Big Mike showed with a solid source that the bozo was incorrect, again.
So what exactly did I rip off, eh?
I was, however, agreeing that W Africa wasn't as isolated as some make out, since even before the Empire of Ghana there was long-distance trade and evidence of contact with Saharans, northeast Africans, and the Maghreb.
So what the F are you talking about?
