Description

Penn Museum Scholars Lunch Lecture Series

Present And Past: People, Places, And Pasture In East African Prehistory

Kathleen Ryan, Associate Curator, African Section

The pastoral economy of the modern Maasai is intimately integrated with grazing rights, boundaries, and social organization. Our archaeological investigations on the Laikipia plateau in Kenya have identified many prehistoric settlements which appear to be base-camps for pastoral groups. Once an adequate chronology is established, we hope to assess the long-term organization and stability of prehistoric pastoralism in this area, using the modern Maasai as a provisional model.

Guests are welcome to bring their lunch.
