Konso

The Konso Cultural Landscape is characterized by extensive dry stone terraces bearing witness to the persistent human struggle to use and harness the hard, dry and rocky environment. The terraces are a result of the genius engineering of the Knoso people that are designed to protect soil from erosion, collect a maximum of water and discharge the excess and create terraced fields that are used for agriculture. Located on hilltops and high plains, the traditional Konso villages are designed to have defensive advantages from foes. These towns are circles by between one and six rounds of stone walls sourced from the harsh rocky landscape.
