A brief report is given on preliminary results of a study dedicated to the Nok Culture of Central Nigeria. The Nok Culture is mainly known by its terracottas which represent the earliest figurative art in sub-Saharan Africa. However, the context of the art remains almost completely unknown. For this reason our study was focussed on settlement sites. It resulted in promising discoveries which need to be investigated in more detail in the future.
