Overview

For 100,000 years, inhabitants of Botswana's Tsodilo Hills region left behind a record of their gathering wild foods, hunting, fishing, mining, rock painting, cattle herding, and metalworking, as well as of their participation in a coast-to-coast trade network. During the past 30 years, archaeologists, paleontologists, historians, and anthropologists have worked at Tsodilo.
     Here is the Tsodilo story, the Hills' revelations brought together in one volume, beautifully illuminated by more than 150 color plates and maps. For scientists, this work brings together decades of research at a site in the Kalahari that was virtually unknown until the late 1970s. Tsodilo Hills also offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of the Kalahari Desert to the general reader, as well as an unsurpassedguide to an extraordinary world to the desert's many tourists.

What People are Saying About This

John Yellen
Tsodilo Hills is a wonderfully researched and richly textured description of one of Africa's most sacred sites. It weaves togethermultiple lines of evidence — geological, ecological, anthropological, and historical — to construct a chain of interaction thatextends for tens of millennia and ties together people and place. It combines perspectives of scientists, students, governmentadministrators, and Tsodilo inhabitants to look from the present both back to the past and into the future. (John Yellen, research associate at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution)
