Actually, Mema is in the dry savanna where agriculture is almost impossible. But, in ancient times, it was rich in water, because there ran a confluent of the Niger River. The prosperity of this region is attested by the.

It is based on fieldwork undertaken in the winter of 1989–90. Altogether, 137 sites were found. Of these, 28 were Late Stone Age sites (LSA) sites and 109 Iron Age sites (IA). This is quite remarkable, coming from an area, which is often referred to as the Dead Delta. The sites discussed in this book have been surveyed and test excavated by the author with the assistance of former students from Rice University and University College London.

Numerous slag heaps (associated with smelting furnaces) found during the regional site survey, and exotic goods uncovered during the excavations at Akumbu indicated that local iron production and long distance trade played an important role in the Mema economy.

Méma is a region in Mali, Africa. A plain of alluvial deposits, it is situated north of Massina; west of Lake Debo and the Inner Niger Delta; and southwest of the Lakes Region. The now-senescent basin may have been the first settlement area for communities who migrated from distressed homelands of the Sahara during the last two millennia BC. Historically, Mema was one of the smaller Soninke References.

West Africa is a vast region on the westerly part of the African continent. As at 2016, the population of West Africa was approximately 362 million people. The highest peaks in the region are mostly found in countries found on the southern shores. The cultures of the people of West Africa are varied, but they all exhibit similarities in their traditional dress, music, and cuisine. Nollywood, Nigeria’s film industry is the largest film industry in Africa and second largest in the world.

This report provides the first archaeological survey of the Mema region of Mali, compiling and analysing data from 137 sites and excavations as well as presenting new information from ongoing excavations at Akumbu. The overall intention of the survey is to propose a chronology for the evolution and development of Iron Age occupation and settlement in the Mema. Conclusions are also drawn as to the nature of the economy and the relationship with settlements further afield.
