Abstract:This paper provides a preliminary account of archaeological research on sites of early pottery-using people in the coastal region of the Congo Republic. The results obtained are compared with observations from Botswana and used to amplify archaeological and linguistic data relevant to the transformations in social and productive forces that occurred across the western part of subequatorial Africa during the period when food production, metallurgy and long-distance trade were established. Particular attention is paid to evidence for developing economic and social relations between indigenous foragers (Pygmy or Khoisan) and immigrant Bantu food producers Bibliogr., sum. also in French.
