The Senegambia area of West Africa is one of the areas that has the richest documentary history of the entire continent.  Digital technologies are making it possible to undertake entirely new kinds of international research with coordinated teams of scholars from several continents.  The ‘Adjami Project of the National Endowment for the Humanities provides a powerful model for this new approach to understanding the history and cultures of West Africa.   This research can now be assisted with newly available digital technology in historical cartography.
