Around 700 B.C., a small civilization emerged in the Niger River Valley known as the Nok People civilization. Very little is known about this people or about their culture. They were not as wealthy as the kingdoms of the North. They led a quiet life of farming and family. The few artifacts that have been found show that they used iron tools to plow and farm the land.
Most people say that as you get old, you have to give up things. I think you get old because you give up things.
Sen. Theodore Francis Green
