The Special Collections Book of the Week this week is:
Mapungubwe. v. 2, Report on excavations at Mapungubwe and Bambandyanalo in Northern Transvaal from 1935 to 1940 by Guy A. Gardner.
From 1935-1940 six excavation seasons at K2 and Mapungubwe Hill were directed by Guy
A. Gardner who was called up for military service in 1940 and was unable to continue after
the War. The results of his work were published nearly 25 years later. This volume is the second report produced on the early archaeological work done at Mapungubwe. During these years the University was also fortunate in having the expert guidance and advice of the late Prof. C. van Riet Lowe, who had been a member of the Archaeological Committee of the University of Pretoria over a long period.
