Ibrahima Thioub. Il y avait trois voies principales : la voie marchande, la voie pénale et la voie martiale, la vente de prisonniers de guerre. Le plus souvent, les Etats guerriers ne faisaient pas le commerce eux-mêmes, parce qu’ils étaient spécialisés dans la guerre. Avec le développement de la traite, dans certaines régions, des bandes armées se forment, qui se spécialisent dans la chasse aux esclaves. Encore aujourd’hui, dans les villages du Sénégal, on dit qu’il ne faut pas sortir aux heures les plus chaudes de la journée ou au moment où le soleil va se coucher. Comment se faisait le contact entre les commerçants européens et ces chasseurs d’esclaves ? Ibrahima Thioub.

Who wrote first?

Not according to archeologist Günter Dreyer, director of the German Institute of Archaeology in Cairo. If he's right, the Earth-shattering invention occurred on the banks of the Nile. In a December press release that was picked up by many wire services, Dreyer said he'd found writing on a group of small bone or ivory labels dating from 3,300 to 3,200 BC. Writing, here, means a symbolic representation of language, not pictures representing concrete objects.

The labels were attached to bags of linen and oil in the tomb of King Scorpion I in Egypt. Like the symbolic systems of pictographs that preceded writing, the inscriptions contained symbols. Thus a pictograph of an eye might stand for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. But Dreyer maintains that the labels he's studied carry inscriptions with phonetic significance. And if he's right, they are the earliest known writing. Almost. Gender Matters: An Overview.
