Abstract:This report on fieldwork and excavations undertaken in 1987 in Limbo (Kisarawe District, Pwani Region, Tanzania) establishes the Limbo site in the Early Iron Age tradition of East Africa on account of pottery with Kwale affinities, and reveals ironworking activities there in the early part of the first millennium AD. A Later Iron Age tradition is also attested, probably dating from about the end of the same millennium or the beginning of the second millennium. The latter period is distinguished by undecorated pottery similar to that recovered from period II at Kilwa. Bibliogr.
