... excavations at twenty-two ancient settlement sites in Madagascar, the Comoros and coastal eastern Africa, dating back to the 8th to 10th century.
Body: 
Ancient crops uncovered in Madagascar suggest populations from South-East Asia settled years ago on the small Island, off the East coast of Africa. Scientists said that unusual plants such as rice and mung beans – which are not found in other parts of Africa – had been grown and harvested at different locations across the island, by the 11th century.The populating of Madagascar has for long remained a mystery.

It has been remembered as an act of ruthless efficiency which destroyed some of England’s greatest cultural treasures but swelled the coffers of the Crown to unprecedented levels. But a collection of artefacts seen in public for the first time in almost 500 years exposes the other side to the dissolution of the monasteries - including moments of what looks like bungling incompetence and haste. A new museum at the ruins of Rievaulx Abbey in North Yorkshire offers glimpses of the life Henry VIII’s commissioners attempted to wipe out: from gold coins, as testament to the Cistercian house’s once great wealth, to religious carvings, monastic drinking vessels and 11th century chess pieces. But among the most telling items in the collection is ...
