Indigenous knowledge and conservation of swahili towns
I am researching on the role of Indigenous knowledge systems in the sustainability of conservation programmes in Swahili towns. I was wondering if someone can assist me with information on traditional or vernacular building styles along the East coast of Africa?

Kassim, Curious, Swahili is an African Trade Language and therefore should not be localised to any one area.
