Egbe History and Culture This book explains the origin of Egbe, a Yoruba town in Nigeria and suggests that there were people who settled at the site as far back as 3,000 BC. It identifies the Founder, Kelae, and explains the eleven original settlements in the town as well as its relationships with the environs. Common beliefs and practices are discussed including initiation into womanhood, rituals, age grouping system and so on.

The history of chieftaincy institutions and the four most recent chiefs of the town are discussed as well as the appointment of honorary chiefs. The legacy of the early missionaries in the areas of education, health-care provision and religion are also briefly looked into.

This New Edition has been expanded with additional information on several issues and it now possesses exhibits and an index useful for a good study.
