Description

This chapter connects ethnographic and historical accounts of village life in Upper Senegal with archaeological data documenting past material and spatial practices. Following a preview of the architectural features and depositional contexts that shaped, and were shaped by, histories of interaction at Diouboye, the chapter introduces artifacts, including domestic equipment, craft goods, trade items, ritual paraphernalia, and plant and animal remains, assembled in these and other medieval contexts along the lower Falemme River.
