ABSTRACT
This section offers a chronology of the history of Senegal. Nomadic tribes begin forming more permanent settlements in the area in 800 B.C. In A.D. 300, a series of West African empires emerge in the region. From 1100s to 1300s, Jolof Empire comes into power and in 1400s, Portuguese sailors begin exploring the Casamance, Senegal, and Gambia Rivers. The Treaty of Paris cedes most of what is now Senegal to France in 1814.
