This research is entitled “An Archaeological Reconnaissance of Kpe Hilltop Settlement Site in Mbaikya Community, Usambe District of Kwande Local Government Area of Benue State, Nigeria”. The research is aimed at attempting a reconstruction of the past ways of life of the people who settled on Kpe hill by investigating Kpe hilltop settlement site. Thus, the research paid specific attention to the collection of oral traditions of the Usambe people, collection of archaeological data on Kpe hill, and consultation of relevant literatures. Thus, work on the sites revealed cultural material remains which include potsherd, lower grinding stones, granary foundations, house foundations, defensive wall, and a water cistern. The research revealed important cultural achievements of the past Tiv people as seen in the artefacts on the hill. The occupation of this site is rooted in the initial migration of the Tiv people from Swem to their present location.
