Abstract:This study deals with Ancient Egyptian and Yoruba of West Africa, an enduring historical problem in African historiography. This dissertation builds upon Lucas's book (Lucas 1948). The central argument of Lucas's book is that Yoruba originated from Ancient Egypt. A lot of African historians have uncritically accepted this view without corroborating their views with facts to affirm Lucas's thesis, and other strident historians like Westcott (1961), and Law (1973b) rejected Lucas arguments by challenging his linguistic method for factual flaws, and others like Law totally rejected Lucas hypothesis regarding Ancient Egyptian origin of Yoruba, both of these authors did not provide information why early Yoruba historians will be claiming Ancient Egyptian origin without any basis in history or objective reality. The rest of the historians have been ambivalent about Ancient Egyptian origin of Yoruba. The 'three schools' of Yoruba historiography: classicism, traditionalism, and pragmatism identified by Doortmont (1993) failed to resolve these issues of Ancient Egyptian origin of Yoruba. African historiography has attempted to resolve this issue of Ancient Egyptian origin of Yoruba, yet the issue remains unabated. In fact, a number of scholars have been examining this problem more or less thoroughly starting from 1942 the year which J.O. Lucas completed his doctoral dissertation. In 1948 the dissertation was published into a book. After publication of Lucas's book there have been many important developments in African history, namely accessibility to scholarly materials, new techniques, and documents which made method of doing research to change these new techniques and changes must be fully integrated into to the conduct of current research in African history. The aim of this dissertation is to resolve the issue of Ancient Egyptian origin of Yoruba. That is why it is indispensable and imperative now that after sixty-five years, to assess and evaluate this historical problem of Yoruba origin and Ancient Egyptians systematically. What I propose to do in this dissertation is to get precise facts to prove relationships between Ancient Egyptians and Yoruba of West Africa. My training in Ancient Egyptian language, and my knowledge of Yoruba and Hausa languages as a native speaker both prepare and give me competence, and understanding to explore significant research questions comprehensively.
