Description [ correction ]

Manyikeni is an archaeological site that dates back from the twelfth to seventeenth century. It is believed to be part of the Great Zimbabwe tradition as a Zimbabwe-style iron gong found at the site suggests cultural ties. Cenchrus Ciliaris grass which is commonly found in Zimbabwe but not in Mozambique covers the site and it is believed that it was introduced by cattle from Zimbabwe. The presence of a large number of glass beads and seashells at the site has led to speculation that the settlement traded extensively with the ancient coastal settlement of Chibuene.
