Inyanga: a preliminary report

  • Roger Summers
Extract

Inyanga is a district in Southern Rhodesia whose monuments were brought to the notice of readers of ANTIQUITY a short while ago. A Fund raised by private subscription mainly from Rhodesian sources has recently sponsored excavations in this district and at the conclusion of the second season's work it seems desirable to make a preliminary report. The excavations were directed by the writer who was fortunate in having the very skilful assistance of the Colony's Inspector of Monuments, Mr K. R. Robinson. Unfortunately no amateurs were able to assist us.
