A polygamist's village is composed Of a large fold, in which his cattle are penned at night. A few yards higher than the fold, and forming a semicircle round it, are the huts of the wives and of such retainers as are distantly related to him. The door of each hut Opens towards the kraal. The lord of the Village Visits the huts in rotation and on certain days, to prevent jealousy among his wives. Every piece of architecture in the village is circular; and, as a satisfactory reason, the owner points to the sun, moon, and winding rivers as his models.
