Archaeological Thoughts and Practices in Southern Africa: Multi-disciplinary Perspectives

Proceedings of the Association of Southern Africa Professional Archaeologists (ASAPA) Conference, Harare, 1-5 July 2015

edited by Seke Katsamudanga, Joseph Chikumbirike

This book is a collection of papers from the conference of the Association of Southern African Professional Archaeologists (ASAPA) that was held at the University of Zimbabwe, Harare, 1-3 July 2015. The chapters deal with little known places as well as new approaches to old sites such as Old Bulawayo and the World Heritage Sites of Great Zimbabwe, Khami and Tsodilo. There are both archaeology and heritage themes that bring a refreshing experience as they focus on less traditional topics in southern Africa. From gender dimensions of cattle ownership, to engravings, faunal remains, and their implications for archaeology, the book also has contributions on conservation of historical buildings, the South African Heritage Information System (SAHRIS) and religious motives of Pentecostal churches in using traditionally sacred places in eastern Zimbabwe.
