China unearted in Africa

Chinese ceramics from archaeological excavations in Southern Africa

China always seems to have been interested in Africa, but unlike Arab and Indian merchants, the Chinese traders were not very active in sea commerce with Africa during most periods of their history. Much of the trade in Chinese goods was done by intermediaries such as the Arabs, Indians, Indonesians, Portuguese and Dutch. Professor Duffey’s main purpose of this paper is to give an overview of the oriental ceramics found at excavation sites in sub-Saharan Africa and to determine whether it was a trade commodity.
