We are very proud to announce that our joint edited book titled "The Kongo Kingdom: The Origins, Dynamics and Cosmopolitan Culture of an African Polity
" is finally out. As you may know, the book presenting the archaeological data from the KongoKing project was also published some months back. It is titled "Une archéologie des provinces septentrionales du royaume Kongo
" and is freely downloadable here
To celebrate the publication of the two books, we organize next week a modest KongoKing book launch event for which you find the announcement in attachment. We have a special guest: Wilfried N’Sondé, the Congolese award-winning author of Un océan, deux mers, trois continents (2018), in which the Kongo kingdom prominently features, and Le Coeur des enfants léopards (2007), among several other novels. Be most welcome to participate in this cheerful event which will be closed with a reception.
