Somaliland sun- The Incipit-CSIC project in Somaliland, 2017 field season presentation by Alfredo González-Ruibal (Titular Scientist of the Incipit-CSIC)

Video Transcript “During the 2016 campaign in Somaliland we have had the opportunity to study several archaeological sites that significantly transform our knowledge of the history of the Horn of Africa and Indian trade in general during the last two millennia. In this talk we will present the main findings -from caravan stations to Persian emporiums, passing through a prehistoric sanctuary- and explain how they will allow us to change some of the perspectives that up to now we had on the social processes in the African coast of Indian Ocean.
