  • Book condition: Ownership inscription ffep. boards show slight curvature else a VG copy.
  • Quantity available: 1
Macmillan. London 1906 1st edition.. Ownership inscription ffep. boards show slight curvature else a VG copy.. Gilt title and black decoration on original light green cloth boards. 106pp illustrated 4to. Author visited seven distinct sites of the ruins in Zimbabwe in 1905 from April to September. At the invitation and with the support of the British Association and the Rhodes Trustees and prepared a report with the conclusion that the existence and use of those buildings was contemporaneous with the European Middle Ages. He concluded that the buildings were deserted by 1550 at the latest, and dates their construction as sometime within the previous two centuries. Previous occupation of the area may have occurred some centuries earlier. The importance of the existing structures fell within the beginning of the 16thC when Sofala was a flourishing port inhabited by Arabs who traded with the interior for gold.
