In An African Classical Age (1998) he argues for a conception of the period from 1000 BC to 400 AD in East Africa as a "classical age" during which a variety of major technologies and social structures first took shape. His Civilizations of Africa: A History to 1800 (2002), brings together the whole of African history from the close of the last ice age down to the end of the eighteenth century.

Christopher Ehret is the latest senior scholar to weigh in with a new text for teaching African history to undergraduates

Christopher Ehret is the latest senior scholar to weigh in with a new text for teaching African history to undergraduates. He limits the text to a time frame near his own specialty in early African history. As Ehret moves his narrative closer to the present, he uses archaeological and documentary sources to inform more detailed discussions of particular societies at particular moments. Moving into the Islamic age, and hence into the period where at least some documentary evidence exists, he keeps the narrative firmly focused on the dynamics of African societies.
