    "Oral" hustory comes through the mouth. 'Written" history comes through the hand.  "Orally written" history? Do you mean the writer taking down the story dictated by the speaker?

    There are any number of books on the subject. I suggest you start by looking at the Wikipedia page "History of Africa" it also has an extensive list of references
