Abstract: This thesis is a study of trade and exchange among the Tiv of the lower Benue valley of central Nigeria from 1850-2000. It investigated the nature and character of trade and trading patterns in the lower Benue valley within the study period with emphasis on the Tiv and their neighbours showing how trade contributed to the growth and development of the Benue valley society, as well as the factors that have engendered or hindered the process. The research adopted a postmodernist conceptual and theoretical framework in the interpretation of findings using an analytical methodology. The thesis in its finding established the nature and extent of exchange relations among the various groups in the Lower Benue Valley as well as the trends in economic relations. It argued that indigenous and external factors or forces played key roles in the economic development of the region. For example the role of Tiv neighbours in the lower Benue valley in the nineteenth century; and those of Europeans especially, the British, in the first half of the twentieth century during colonialism was significant, as was taxation, infrastructure, urbanization and capitalism as agents of economic change.
