Abstract:This edited volume is based on papers presented at a conference organised at the Centre for African Studies by the University of Cape Town, South Africa on March 28 and 29 2014 under the auspices of the Pre-Colonial Catalytic project. The book is part of a series which groups together research on pre-colonial South Africa carried out in South African institutions and elsewhere. Another goal of this volume is to suggest ways in which the field could progress and expand in the future. Issues addressed in this first volume are: heritage, archives, archaeological methods, ethnicity and gender, languages and the history of the Khoisan. Contributions: Introduction (L. Ntsebeza, C. Saunders); Working with Southern Africa's pasts 1500-1880 (J. Wright); The Holocene archaeology of the Karoo (J. Deacon); The archaeology of the Khoekhoen (A. B. Smith); Historical priorities for Eastern Cape archaeological research (J. Peires); Ethnicity and gender in pre-colonial Ndebele societies in South Africa (S. P. Lekgoathi); The five hundred-year archive online project: a preliminary project (C. Hamilton); Classifying the non-Bantu click languages (M. Brenzinger); Continuity and change in the oral tradition of the Karoo: a preliminary report (J. M. De Prada-Samper); The Koisan: early interactions with European colonists and slaves (V.C. Malherbe); Contemporary Khoisan heritage issues in South Africa: a brief historical overview (J. Bam); ''Warm oneself at the society of men (and women)'': reconstituting an 'inbandla' as a sphere for the literati (V. Khumalo); The Ulawazi programme, the pre-colonial past and identity in KwaZulu-Natal (G. Mcnulty). [ASC Leiden abstract]
