Abstract:
In January 1970, the present writer visited Dambara, a little village situated near the banks of the River Moa, and only a few minutes' walk by bush-path from the Kailahun to Mano-Sewalu motor road. As he wandered through the village, a feeling which had been growing in him for a long time suddenly crystallized. This village, in its material culture and human activities, bore a striking resemblance to the sort of villages which were described by British travellers in the area during the 1890s. There was very little to be seen in Dambara which could be described as an innovation or development resulting from colonial rule. Eighty years of contact with Europeans had apparently made little impression on the everyday life of ordinary village people. Moreover, Dambara was not exceptionalt most human settlements in the Luawa area were similar. These thoughts provided the genesis of this thesis.
