Archaeological encounters with recent Karoo history – Professor Simon Hall

Professor Simon Hall, Associate Professor at UCT, will present a talk at Roedean School on 19 May 2016 on some of the 19th century archaeological residues related to the historical layering and its rich cultural mélange of the Karoo. He will address the contribution these residues may make to an understanding of the Karoo, and acknowledge the brutal dispossession of home suffered by Khoesan from the 18th century. He will also highlight archaeological contributions that put them back on this landscape by recognising their cultural continuity.
