Wrappers somewhat soiled and splitting on spine; corners curled; staples rusting. Good condition. Holm: Bibliography of South African Pre- and Proto-Historic Archaeology, #1051-1053: "A survey of archaeological problems, with special reference to typology and technique, in which Van Hoepen expresses strong criticism of work done during the combined geological and archaeological investigation of the Vaal Basin. Instead of three climatic cycles in the Old Stone Age of the Vaal, he sees only one. He urges the adoption of his own terminology and separation of the cultures (though admitting his own earlier mistakes), in the place of that used by Van Riet Lowe and others.".

HUMPHREYS, A. J. B.
Searching for the Past: The Methods and Techniques of Archaeology
(Cape Town: David Philip, 1986). . 210 x 150 mm; pictorial wraps; line drawings and black-and-white photographs. Wraps very slightly sunned; previous owner's hand-stamp on half-title. Very good condition. "The South African Archaeological Society has long felt the need for a series of introductory booklets on southern African archaeology that will provide clear and authoritative guides for students as well as for general readers. In the first volume, Searching for the Past, Dr A. J. B. Humphreys describes the methods and techniques used by archaeologists to locate, excavate and interpret the often ephemeral remains of both prehistoric and historic inhabitants of southern Africa. Just as a detective must reconstruct the events surrounding a crime, so the archaeologist has to piece together the clues left inadvertently by people hundreds and thousands of years ago. The challenge lies not only in finding the scattered pieces of this jigsaw puzzle, but in putting them together so that a comprehensive and intelligible picture of the past will emerge. This book, which is illustrated throughout, shows how archaeologists decide where to dig, what sorts of remains - such as pollen, charcoal, and even chemicals in bones - can yield climatic and environmental data, and how this mass of information is used to reconstruct the lives of prehistoric people.".

INSKEEP, R. R.
The Peopling of Southern Africa
(Cape Town: David Philip, 1978) 0949968692. . 4to; laminated pictorial boards; pp. 160, incl. index; profusely illustrated with maps, diagrams, charts, photographs, incl. full-colour. Some foxing to outermost leaves. Very good condition. "Despite the advances made in recent years by archaeologists, not many people other than specialists are aware of the present state of knowledge of Southern Africa's prehistory. This book provides an up-to-date and authoritative account specially designed for the general public, first-year university students and high-school libraries. The text traces the threads of man's evolution in Africa, and his arrival and dispersal in the southern part of the continent from the earliest beginnings up to the Later Iron Age, which preceded the modern periods of immigration and colonisation of Southern Africa. The book also provides a useful introduction for the layman to the scope and methods of modern archaeology. The book is lavishly illustrated with colour and black-and-white photographs, charts, maps and diagrams.".

LEAKEY, MARY
Disclosing the Past
(London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1984) 0297785451. . 8vo; original blue boards, lettered in gilt on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 224, incl. index; plates; map. Dustwrapper sunned on spine panel; trace of spotting to edges and endpapers. Very good condition. "In the summer of 1935, during her first visit to East Africa, Mary Leakey, then just 22 years old, drove down the rocky flank of Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania and found herself gazing spellbound at a view that was to come to mean more to her than any other in the world. That view was the vast Serengeti Plain, 'stretching away to the horizon like the sea ... always the same, yet always different'. Perhaps that was the moment when Africa took its hold on her, for despite journeys to many parts of the world, the gullies and stream-beds, cliffs and hillsides of this ancient landscape were to be her home for nearly half a century. Here, with her husband Louis, and for many years after his death in 1972, she was to be involved in some of the most important and dramatic finds ever to shake the world of prehistoric archaeology.".

OPPENHEIMER, STEPHEN
Out of Africa's Eden. The Peopling of the World
(Johannesburg: Jonathan Ball, 2003) 1868421732. . 234 x 155 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. xxi + (i) + 440, incl. index; plates; maps; diagrams; graphs. Trace of spotting to top edge. Near fine condition. "In a brilliant synthesis of new genetic, archaeological and climatic evidence, Stephen Oppenheimer challenges the orthodoxy by arguing that all modern non-Africans can be shown to have sprung from a single successful exodus. One migrant band of no more than a few hundred souls was forced out of its homeland by increasing salinity in the Red Sea, some 80,000 years ago, and all non-Africans today can trace their mitochondrial DNA to one woman from the group - the Out-of-Africa Eve. This is the story of that remarkable group and its great global trek.".

PARKINGTON, JOHN (TEXT) AND NEIL RUSCH (PHOTOGRAPHS)
Shorelines, Strandlopers and Shell Middens
(Clanwilliam: Living Landscape Project, 2006) 0620352329. . 210 x 246 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. 127; lavishly illustrated in full colour with photographs, maps, tables, graphs. Fine condition. "Shorelines are fascinating for many reasons. Lying along the interface of land and sea, they are eroded into dramatic shapes and house a vast range of interesting, often edible species of plants and animals. Geologists and biologists roam the shores in search of rocks, birds, seals, kelp forests or shells to collect or record. Holiday makers, fishermen and surfers prefer the waves, the views or the beaches. As an archaeologist I have been intrigued by the shell heaps along the shores that are surviving traces of thousands of years of earlier beachcombing. We call these heaps shell middens and they represent a rich archive of information about how our ancestors lived along the shore. South Africa has the longest, the best preserved and the most interesting such record in the world. Here we look at how to extract information from the shells, bones and artefacts to write the history of our species.".
