Here it is: the final product! Since my project really is a summary of my research (with some extrapolations of course), the best way to post a summary of my research is to post the project itself…
My first blog post left off with me about to begin my second section of research, and struggling over what format I wanted my end product to take. As of tonight, the research and the second draft of my ending document are finished!

There is an overall lack of information on cultural astronomy and archaeoastronomy in Sub-Saharan Africa. This having been said, it was rather difficult for me to gain access to scholarly works on the subject, resulting in my eventual purchase of African Cultural Astronomy, a collection of articles pertinent to “current archaeoastronomy and ethnoastronomy research in Africa.” Within this book, many articles were not relevant to my project as they either dealt with Northern Africa or initiatives to increase astronomy research and education in Africa.
