Mapungubwe Archive

The Mapungubwe Archive at the University of Pretoria is a repository that identifies, collects, and preserves records of archival value relating to the history of Mapungubwe and the role of the University of Pretoria from 1933 to the present.

The Archive forms a crucial part of the institution's memory bank, where historical and current records are held in perpetuity as the University of Pretoria's stewardship of the Mapungubwe Collection is a national and global responsibility. The Archive acquires both public and private records by transfer, gift, bequest, exchange or any other transaction to be held in trust for future generations.
