Black Scientists & Inventors in the UK: Millenniums of Inventions & Innovations
Is the first comprehensive study of the black (African) contribution in science and technology in particular and other contributions in general to Britain (UK). It's an epic story that starts in Africa, the cradle of civilization and later moves directly to Britain (and also to Britain via the Caribbean diaspora). Williams and Amalemba uncovers one of the world's best-kept historical secrets, that Africans were inventing and building civilizations across the British isles from as early as 8000 BCE, and they continue to do so to this present day.
This book is suitable for children [and adults] between the ages 12 to 100 years.
