Angola History

Khoisan hunter-gatherers are some of the earliest known modern human inhabitants of the area. They were largely replaced by Bantu tribes during Bantu migrations, though small numbers of Khoisan remain in parts of southern Angola to the present day. The Bantu came from the north, probably from somewhere near the present-day Republic of Cameroon. When they reached what is now Angola they encountered the Khoisan, Bushmen and other groups considerably less advanced than themselves, who they easily dominated with their superior knowledge of metal-working, ceramic and agriculture. The establishment of the Bantu took many centuries and gave rise to various groupings who took on different ethnic characteristics.

The geographical areas now designated as Angola first became the subject to incursions by the Portuguese in the late 15th century. In 1483 Portugal established relations with the Kongo State, Ndongo and Lunda existed. The Kongo State stretched from modern Gabon in the north to the Kwanza River in the south. Angola became a link in European trade with India and Southeast Asia. Portuguese explorer Paulo Dias de Novais founded Luanda in 1575 as So Paulo de Loanda"

with a hundred families of settlers and four hundred soldiers. Benguela

a Portuguese fort from 1587

a town from 1617
