Accession Number:
A line of several small family enclosures composed of a rough ring of huts with a central animal space, visible on the sides of a steep hill in the Tabi massif. Each small grouping was the residence of a man, his wives and unmarried children, and sometimes also sons-in-law with families. Taken together, these groups of socially related enclosures formed hamlets, a sub-division of the larger canton or tribal sub-group, which had a chief.
