Given all the critism given out over the Camp at Isandlwana i would like to know what could have been done to protect the camp. Idea

For example

Laarger
Barrier of stones and rocks




Cheers

I recall reading somewhere that a 110 wagons would have been required to form a substantial Laarger. But to be honest there really is no excuse for not forming some kind of fortification, there was plenty of men available and natural materials like the rocks you mentioned.
