The Tale of Mapungubwe

The kingdom of Mapungubwe is situated on the Shashe and Limpopo Rivers in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. It lies in a landscape of sandstone hills, ancient Baobab trees and Mopane bushveld. This Stone Age Kingdom dates back to the period AD 970 to AD 1290. Today the area is not only a South African National Park but also a World Heritage Site that boasts impressive archaeological discoveries.

Relics and gold artefacts including the gold rhinoceros which Mapungubwe is renowned for, have lead archaeologists to believe that the Mapungubwe culture represented an extensive metal working and trading community. The high calibre of craftsmanship and design has been heralded and applauded by worldwide authorities. Beautifully created gold items, minute gold nails and beads, pottery with delicate decorations and elaborate shapes, locally cast glass beads as well as bone and ivory objects, will forever bear testimony to this ancient kingdom.
