About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1928, this book provides an introduction to the prehistory of South Africa. It was based on an archaeological tour through South Africa and Southern Rhodesia, undertaken by the author at the invitation of the University of Cape Town. The text contains chapters on a broad variety of cultural phenomena, covering aspects of art and technology, together with the broad interaction between humans and the surrounding environment. A detailed bibliography, index, and numerous illustrative figures are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in prehistory and archaeology.
