Lane, P., Ashley, C., Seitsonen, O., Harvey, P., Mire, S. and Odede, F. (2007) The transition to farming in Eastern Africa: New faunal and dating evidence from Wadh Lang'o and Usenge, Kenya. Antiquity, 81 (311). pp. 62-81. ISSN 0003 598XFull text not available from this repository.
The exploratory investigation of two sites in Kenya throws new light on the transition from a ‘stone age’ to an ‘iron age’. The model of widespread cultural replacement by Bantu-speaking iron producers is questioned and instead the authors propose a long interaction with regional variations. In matters of lithics, ceramics, hunting, gathering, husbandry and cooking, East African people created local and eclectic packages of change between 1500BC and AD500.
