The building constructions of the Nok Research Station Janjala started in 2009. Janjala is a small village, about 160 km to the north of Abuja, the capital of Nigeria. In the camp are living quarters, sanitations, a kitchen as well as rooms for working and relaxing to make stays for several month possible. The Research Station is located in the centre of the key study area and is a contact address for locals, who want to inform themselves about the Nok culture or discovered new sites.
Every year other academics join the team.
