Date

of the African continent  Like the areas south of the Sahara Desert , the eastern coast of the continent meant nothing to many western historians. German philosopher of disregard for Africa common among Western historians  Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel  In the 18th century, he summarized Africa with the words that it was not seen as a historical part of the world and did not show any movement or development in this sense. There was no change in this thought among historians until the beginning of the 20th century.

Contrary to these thoughts, the coastal regions of Kenya were especially  Arabic  and  Islam  With the world's manifestation in writing, culture and language, the historical events unique to this region of the continent have been made to be explained for the entire eastern coast of the continent. In this process, especially in the 1900s, many European historians were initially only interested in Portugal.  They documented the events that took place on the coasts of Kenya, including the expeditions in the Indian Ocean and the travels of the Arab sultans, and in this way, historical events were recorded for the first time for these regions.

 

Pre date [ Change  |  change source ]

In the country, where there are many dinosaur and crocodile fossils from the prehistoric period, the oldest fossil remains belong to 200 million years ago. The oldest human fossils have been found around Lake Turkana in Kenya. These findings suggest that there has been a life in the regions where Kenya is established for a very long time.  Australopithecus anamensis  and  Kenyanthropus  four to three million years ago  hominin  fossils  discovery in the region strengthened these thoughts.

early date

B.C. In the 2000s, communities that migrated from North Africa, presumably from Ethiopia, settled in Kenya and were engaged in animal husbandry. In the 1st century AD, Arab traders made commercial visits to the Kenyan coast, and in the 8th century AD, Arab and Persian settlements on the Kenyan coast gradually increased.

In the 10th century AD, they make up three-quarters of Kenya's population today.  Nilotic  and  Bantu  communities migrated to Kenya, in this process many  Arabic  containing words  Swahili  language emerged and started to be used among communities. During this period, many Arab and Roman merchants came to the coasts of Kenya and engaged in commercial activities. Although there is no exact information about how far the merchants entered Kenya's interior during these arrivals and departures, although their locations do not match exactly on the maps of the ancient and medieval periods, the snow-covered mountains and lakes depicted in the interior have been found in the consciousness of their existence.

During this period, the religion of Islam spread in the region, and the coastal part enabled the formation of the Swahili community, a multicultural and multi-ethnic community.
