The basin's location and its environmental endowments favored it as a productive Iron Age agricultural and industrial site. Alluvial soils would have supported the sorghums, millets, and pulses native to Africa and so widely used by East Africa's early Iron Age farmers. In addition to these indigenous cultigens, farmers readily adopted the exotic crops which began to enter Mlalo's farming systems between 8oo and 1,200 AD, when East Africa's coasts and hinterlands became part of the Indian Ocean trading complex. Of the Asian cultigens, bananas proved to be one of the most enduring staples. Other important Asian and American crops from the complex included sweet potatoes, rice, sugar cane, and maize.12Mlalo's location was also ideal for iron smiths, who forged the tools for cultivating crops in fires fueled by trees found in the easily accessible and abundant forest of the central and northern massif.

Meru is a stratovolcano in Tanzania. Its history has been quite explosive. It has had four eruptions, the last of which occurred in 1910. Lava erupted from Meru varies from thin flows to thick intusive domes.
The main cone of the volcano has a caldera which is 2.2 miles (3.5 km) in diameter. It has a huge breach on its eastern side. A graben runs down the side of the volcano from this breach. Many debris flows came through the breach in the caldera. These cover 1500 sq km to the northeast, east and southeast. Following the eruption of this debris, a lava dome and ash cone grew on the floor of the caldera. Back
