Anthropology in Zimbabwe

We start at the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site in South Africa, widely recognized as the place from which all of humankind originated. The 47,000-hectare (~18 square miles) site has revealed the best evidence of the complex journey which our species has taken to make us what we are.  Three weeks later we end at Victoria Falls – one of the largest waterfalls in the world.  During this program you will experience Incredible wildlife in their natural habitat, bush drives, ancient rock drawings, river cruises, African food & music, meeting villagers, the traditions of Zimbabwe … and much much more!
 
The courses will cover a range of topics including the prehistory of South Africa beginning with the evolution of early hominids to the development of state societies, archaeological methods, and the impact of colonialism on modern populations.  Specific attention however will be paid to the rock art of the San Bushmen in Zimbabwe. Students will have the opportunity to observe and record rock art sites in the areas of Limpopo and Matopos, Zimbabwe.
