Abstract:Thesis on the history of a group of oases in Niger, Kawar, from the beginning of the 7th century until the beginning of the 20th century. The purpose is to give an insight into the factors that have shaped the history of this area. The most important internal factor is the special position of these oases as a producer of salt. An external factor is the geographical situation of the oases as a mid-way halting and resting place for the traders going between North Africa and the Central Sudan.
