Into Africa

Late on Thursday night, I received the news that our Wenner-Gren Foundation application for funding to carry out work in Tanzania has been accepted.  It’s taken about eighteen months of hard work from various people to make this happen, so naturally we’re all delighted.  The project seeks to identify the emergence of pastoralism in Tanzania and has an international team featuring Mary Prendergast, Audax Mabulla, Oula Seitsonen, Katherine Grillo, Agnes Gidna and Diane Gifford-Ganzalez as well as myself.  I’ve added a page to the website to give an overview of the project for anybody interested in learning a little more about our research aims, and more details will follow here as they’re settled.

More African related news will appear here in the next few days.
