Niger is a dry & arid land.
Most people from Niger live along a thin strip of fertile land edging the Niger River.
During medieval times much of Niger was incorporated into large empires which were found in
Mali, Chad & Nigeria.
During the 18th century the Tuaregs & Hausa peoples united to fight
the Fulani empire. In the 19th century explorers
from Britain & France entered Niger in hope
of discovering the source of the Niger River.
