Before Farming

Hunter-gatherer archaeology in southern Africa

recent research, future trends

Before Farming (2002), 2002, (1), 1–36.

Abstract

Southern Africa has become a major focus for international hunter-gatherer research, partly because of the prominence accorded surviving Bushman peoples in the anthropological literature, partly because of recent advances in understanding the origins of anatomically modern humans and the meaning of Bushman rock art. This paper surveys the principal developments in hunter-gatherer archaeology within the region over the past decade and identifies the key themes that have been pursued. It then attempts to indicate the main directions along which research may grow over the next several years.
