Get Smart

Early Histories of Zambia are sketchy, but there seems to be evidence of an "early version" of Homo sapiens in Zambia as long as 200,000 to 400,000 years ago.

By the 4th Century A.D., waves of early Bantus arrived from the north. It is these people who gave rise to today's modern Zambians. Tim Lambert has written a nice historical summary of Zambia, from early Bushmen days to the election of Chiluba, in 1991. Evidently, Lambert doesn't like using commas, but it's still an informative read.
