A Happy New Year to you all!
Last year, at about this same time of the year, I compiled and published what I could glean from various sources about various key events in Nigeria over the past millennium. It was comprehensive, but by no means exhaustive.
There were events omitted - sporting highlights, the contribution of women, literary and educational milestones, death announcements of some important personalities, etc. A few dates needed correction. Several readers graciously pointed some of these out, while I
went looking for others.
The information below is my best attempt at the update of One Thousand Years of Nigeria's history from 1000 to 1999. The highlights of just the Year 2000 will be published in a separate email at a later date.
Have a Happy New Year 2001.
