Cameroon History

The territory of present day Cameroon was first settled during the Neolithic. The longest continuous inhabitants are the Pygmy groups such as the Baka. The Sao culture arose around Lake Chad c. AD 500 and gave way to the Kanem and its successor state, the Bornu empire. Kingdoms, fondoms, and chiefdoms arose in the west.

Portuguese sailors reached the coast in 1472. They noted an abundance of prawns and crayfish in the Wouri River and named it Rio dos Camares, Portuguese for River of Prawns"

and the phrase from which Cameroon is derived. Over the following few centuries

European interests regularised trade with the coastal peoples

and Christian missionaries pushed inland. In the early 19th century
