Acknowledgments

References. In memoriam J. Desmond Clark, 1916-2002This paper could not have been written without years of fieldwork by many Africanist scholars. We dedicate it to the memory of J. Desmond Clark. We are grateful to David Browman, Cathy D’Andrea, Gayle Fritz, Randi Haaland, Mary McDonald, Tom Pilgram, Patty JoWatson, and Fred Wendorf for comments and information. We thank Angela Close and five anonymous reviewers, but are solely responsible for any errors. Diane Gifford-Gonzalez, Ruth Shahack-Gross, and Darla Dale contributed stimulating discussions of African archaeology. We are indebted to the institutions in Ethiopia and Kenya that have supported our research: the Kenya National Museums and the ARCCH and National Herbarium in Ethiopia.
