Background

It was reported that the archaeological remnants found at the Nyanga National Park indicate that people started to live there in the Stone Age and Iron Age eras. They reportedly stayed beneath the mountains and would climb up the heights when in need of safety.

The study of archaeologists discovered ruins consisting of beads, pottery, bone and metal work. These findings were published in a book In Inyanga, Prehistoric Settlements in Southern Rhodesia in 1958 by Roger Summers. Read More
