Abstract

Evidence of human occupation reaching back to 40,000 years ago in North-West Gabon has been identified. A paleo-environmental study coupled with archaeological research show that forests have been present for at least 6,000 to 9,000 years and therefore the last hunter-gatherers and early villagers lived in a forest environment. This case study presents the oldest direct evidence linking human settlements with a forest environment lasting several millennia for Gabon and the forested part of Central Africa.
