Would it change the context if I say "surprisingly" instead of "stunningly"?
It changes the context slightly. "Surprisingly" means that something is unexpected. "Stunningly" means in a way that is extremely attractive or beautiful. When she says that Africa's history is "stunningly deep," it means that it's a beautiful, rich culture filled with complex details and information. If you were to change it to "surprisingly," it now means that their culture is unexpectedly filled with complex details and information. Ex: She is surprisingly good at tennis. Ex: She was stunningly dressed for the ball. Ex: We are surprisingly on time today. Ex: The photo stunningly reflects light.
