I have led fieldwork in northern Mozambique since 2003, and my work in this region is the first step in covering a substantial gap of African Prehistory. My data constitute the only modern source of terrestrial and paleoecological data from this time period in the eastern shore of Lake Niassa. They serve as backdrop information to the recently published environmental sequence from lacustrine sedimentary series derived from large-scale core drilling of Lake Malawi, and they complement what is known from equivalent geological formations across the lake such as the Chitimwe Beds. The work so far conducted and the work to be conducted constitutes the only referential to evaluate the prospect of long-term excavation in Mozambique. I have set up collaborations with several scientists from across Canada, the US, Australia, South Africa, and Mozambique to study, date, and understand the sites under scrutiny.
