Overview

After Patricia Vinnicombe's death in 2003, Peter Mitchell and Ben Smith were called to the challenge of adding additional sections to the People of Eland. Both editors have brought together leading scholars in the field to write new sections to explain how early knowledge of San art has changed and how current research is still influenced by this landmark volume.

The Eland's People is thus intended as a companion volume to People of the Eland and it is hoped that this new volume will provide a richer appreciation of the importance of Patricia Vinnicombe's original work, as well as allowing readers an overview of current understandings of Drakensberg rock art.
