‘'This is a very well-researched text on the Middle Stone Age (MSA) of Nigeria in particular and West Africa in general... It is a text that every archaeologist, irrespective of their area of specialization, should have on the bookshelf as a reference material.’ – Raphael A. Alabi (2020): African Archaeological Review
‘Although it declares to speak only of the Middle Stone Age of Nigeria in the West African context, this work will become the reference work on the Middle Stone Age of a West Africa stretching from Senegal to Cameroon.’ – Alain Marliac (2022): Journal des Africanistes 2021, 91-2
