ABSTRACT
Chapter 2 of the book "Senegal" is presented. It offers information on the history of Senegal. Early people were nomads to hunted animals and gathered fruits and berries. Archeologists have found tools and weapons that belonged to early peoples. From around A.D. 300 through the 1500s, a series of West African empires controlled the eastern region of Senegal. One of the earliest was the Ghana Empire. The religious faith of Islam was introduced through the Tekrur kingdom, whose inhabitants were converted by the Berber people living to the north.
