Welcome to The Site of The Black History Man

Robin Walker, also known as The Black History Man, is the foremost historian and writer on all matters related to ancient and medieval African history. In his latest book, Ancient Egyptian contributions to Science and Technology, Robin shows how western scholars are becoming more open to the contributions of Islamic scholars to the development of science and technology including some of the Black ones. Others are starting to embrace the contributions of the Mesopotamians, Indians and Chinese to science and technology. But where is non-Muslim Africa in this discussion? Where is the African Diaspora in this discussion? This book is one of a series of books that introduce African and African Diasporan contributions to science and technology. The others in the series concern early West Africa and African Diasporan contributions to science and technology.

Robin Walker spells out both clearly and eloquently, the great contributions made by Ancient Egyptians in the areas of Mathematics, Medicine and Surgery, Astronomy, Architecture, Navigation and Cartography, just to name a few of the areas covered. The book really breaks down these subject matters whilst shedding new light on what until now has been left largely unreported. In searching for a book on this topic on Amazon, I cannot recommend the book highly enough. Just buy it!


Robin Walker’s ebook “Ancient Egyptian contributions to Science and Technology,” details the contributions made by the ancient Egyptians to the “origin and evolution of mathematics, astronomy, medicine and surgery, navigation and cartography, architecture and others.” It is an eye-opener and leaves you in awe at what was achieved. This is the first of four in the series on this topic. So, my advice would be, get this one and if you like it get the rest. Simple.


This book is epic. No fluff, just straight to the point facts about the everlasting contributions Ancient Egyptians made to the world. Lots of areas are covered and the author takes the reader on a very distant yet factual journey. I picked up a lot of golden nuggets from this book and enjoyed reading it immensely. If you want to know about specific areas like Architecture, Medicine, Mathematics or Cartography then this is the book for you. Highly recommended.

This book is one of a series of African History books that are concise yet full of information and facts about the contributions made by our early ancient Egyptian ancestors. The importance of knowledge around this subject area cannot be underestimated because of the blatant omission of African contributions to the major areas of the modern world. Each book covers the work of many renowned scholars and synthesises their findings in order to present the data in an easy to digest, bite-size way. Take a look at the other books in the series.
