Map Description:
This map displays the locations of African civilizations between 9000 and 6700 B.C.E. Despite the widespread nature of the group, Ehret has refrained from outlining the BaTwa (often known as "pygmies" in European languages) homeland, although it seems that their general location has remained relatively steady through to the modern age.
