English term or phrase: Early-Voltaic
Bonjour tout le monde,

Je viens de poser la même question dans la combinaison allemand/français, mais essaie également dans la combinaison anglais/français afin de toucher plus de traducteurs susceptibles de m'aider.
Le terme désigne une période de l'histoire de l'Afrique de la région de la Volta.

Je voulais éviter "début de l'époque voltaïque" (pas très précis) et "voltaïque primitif" (qui ne plait pas du tout à l'auteur du texte).

Merci d'avance!

Explanation:
Bonnes remarques sur mon "proto" merci, alors pre-période peut-être.
Ou bien le "voltaïque d'avant"
