Abstract:The present article deals with the stone fortifications of Dawro and Wolayta in southern Ethiopia. An impact assessment was initiated in response to a development project, which might endanger archaeological sites. A brief account of local information and description of the walls of Dawro and Wolayta precedes a discussion of local myths and history, which leads to hypothesis that will be taken as indicator of future historical and archaeological research. Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum. in English and French. [Journal abstract]
