The peoples of Central Africa have no written records. If their history it to be reconstructed it must be by the co-operation of experts in different fields. In this discussion an Egyptologist, an archaeologist, a historian, and a District Officer examine the evidence about one small but central region in western Uganda. They trace the origins of iron-working to the ancient kingdom of Meroe in the Nile Valley, and debate the possible routes by which this and other elements of civilisation spread southwards to the Lake region.
