Mgoduyanuka: terminal Iron Age settlement in the Natal grasslands
This paper gives the first description of a type of Late Iron Age settlement which is characteristic of a large part of the interior grasslands of Natal. The site, dated to about the seventeenth or eighteenth century, had an economy based on cattle, small stock and cultivation, particularly of maize. Cultural aspects relate it to Nguni-speaking peoples, but differentiate it from all such groups described in the anthropological literature.
