Chapter Summary

This chapter employs archaeological techniques to verify, clarify, and supplement information used by researchers who have relied on historical methods alone in studying Maji Maji in Ungoni. Historical archaeology is a sub-discipline of archaeology which shares time scope and methods with history, particularly the application of archival and oral sources. The chapter is based on a research conducted from 200204 in Ungoni, which today constitutes Namtumbo and Songea Districts. Specific locations studied include Kitanda in Namtumbo District and Maposeni, Mangua and Kikole in Songea District. The study involved interviewing local people in order to get in-depth information about the relationship between sites and the Maji Maji War. The chapter attempts to merge tangible (material) and intangible (oral tradition) evidence in order to enrich the history of the Maji Maji War in Ungoni.

Keywords: historical archaeology; Kitanda; Maji Maji War; Mangua; Maposeni; Songea; Ungoni
