At Malthi we may have the instance of a village where one lineage group was ascendant and where its headman and his family lived in the main house, which was also a place of socio-political gathering. The nearby evidence of a suite of rooms for probable craft activities may indicate the desire of the headman to have some immediate control over important craft production (Valmin 1938: 102–5, 368–9). Whether or not we would find the same plan and organisation elsewhere depends upon the extent to which other places had achieved the same level and kind of socio-political integration as at Malthi.
