Figure 7a. Excavations at the Maasai Plains site, Mugie Ranch, Laikipia Plateau, Kenya, in 2005; the low mound in the foreground represents the remains of a dung-ash-and-refuse midden. This “glade” marks the location of a large former pastoralist encampment that may have remained open for upward of 600 years.
