It incorporates and extends the work of Alain Gallay and Eric Huysecom, begun in the 1980s and leading to the establishment of the Mission Archéologique et Ethnoarchéologique Suisse en Afrique de l'Ouest (MAESAO) concentrated on the Inland Niger Delta (IND) region (19881996). That work was followed by the ongoing project, Human Populations and Paleoenvironment in West Africa, focused initially on the Ounjougou site complex on the Bandiagara cliffs and expanded to include the Seno-Gondo plains of Dogon country (1997present). This volume is based on Mayor's doctoral dissertation defended in 2005 with the addition of a postface outlining some of the results of more recent research achieved between 2005 and 2010. Mayor's aim is an ambitious one: to reconstruct
