Early Iron Age sites in the Muden area of Natal


  • T. Maggs Natal Museum
  • V. Ward Natal Museum


Small-scale excavations are described from two sites. Faunal and floral analyses give us further information on the economy of the period. Iron smelting, the ceramic sequence and other aspects of material culture are discussed. The first Early Iron Age burials, though very incomplete are described and the skeletal remains are analysed in an appendix by H. de Villiers. Conclusions are drawn concerning the choice of site locations and the reoccupation of sites.
