The Pate Chronicle book.

The Pate Chronicle book. This historical work in its various forms is representative of a living historical tradition developed in the coastal city-states of East Africa and is considered one of the important literary treasures of their culture and society.

African Historical Sources 4. East Lansing: Michigan State University Press 1993, pp. xiv, 607. Although The Pate Chronicle is one of the most complete and detailed narratives to come from the East African Coast, it has been underutilized (or even misused), especially by historians. This situation is unfortunate given the historical role of Pate town at the nexus of cultural and economic exchange between the African and Indian Ocean worlds.

Tolmacheva, Pate Chronicle

Tolmacheva, Pate Chronicle. However, for the record, the Werner, Heepe, Stigand and Voeltzkow versions originally were published in Werner, . A Swahili History of Pate, Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society, 14 (1915), 148-61, 278-97, 392–413; Heepe, . Suaheli-Chronik von Pate. Ubersetzt und bearbeitet von M. Heepe. 17. While the Pate Chronicles are supported by at least one external source that the successor sultan's name was Ahmad, there is some confusion over the name of his opponent. Smee and Hardy, who visited Pate in 1811, name the sultan as Hammed, but his rival as one Ben Baneeci.

Other sources of African history include museums, archives, and libraries. There are several sources of African history, one of which is a griot. A griot is an oral historian that recounts the history of Africa in song, story, or poetic form. One of the best sources of African history is being able to tour Africa itself and learn the rich diversity of its many peoples, if possible. Other sources of African history include museums, archives, and libraries. What is non documentary sources?

Stigand was infamous for not talking about himself and for his manner of underplaying his own accomplishments (from war . Like all of Stigand's books, this is good value. He obviously knew and understood the African well. From a hunters point of view, he also knew his stuff.

Stigand was infamous for not talking about himself and for his manner of underplaying his own accomplishments (from war actions, big five maulings, and hunting exploits). He hunting in the most wild of continents at the magical time when firearms had progressed to the point that made hunting the largest game possible and restrictions on this hunting were almost nonexistent. Not big on bravado, Stigand will keep you involved from cover to cover. The only think I found lacking was that he doesn't go into any detail about his hunting rifles.

In late October 1890, a British force led by Admiral Fremantle assaulted and subdued the East African town of Witu, the mainland capital of the Nabahani rulers of Pate; five years later, the entire region and the adjacent coastal islands came under British administration. One of the great tragedies suffered as a result of Admiral Fremantle's initial attack was the loss of the original manuscript of the history of Pate, The Book of the Kings of Pate.      This historical work in its various forms is representative of a living historical tradition developed in the coastal city-states of East Africa and is considered one of the important literary treasures of their culture and society. It also stands as the most important indigenous source for Swahili history, the history of the Swahili language, its dialects, and its written tradition. The four Arabic-Swahili versions (manuscripts 177, 321, 344, and 358 of the Library of the University of Dar es Salaam) presented here in The Pate Chronicle add significantly to the growing pool of information available about Pate and East Africa before the era of European colonialism.
