By the first century B.C., settled agriculture existed in West Africa. From there it spread to the equatorial forests. African
farmers learned to domesticate plants including millet, sorghum, and yams. Cereal-growing people probably taught forest people to plant regular fields. Gradually, African farmers also learned to clear land by burning. They evolved a sedentary way of life – living in villages, clearing fields, relying on root drops, and fishing. They evolved a sedentary way of life living in villages, clearing fields, relying on root drops, and fishing. What is the main idea of this paragraph? A. Agriculture reached Africa first in Egypt. B.
