The annual Pretoria ArchSoc lecture in conjunction with UPAS (15th of August) was a huge success! Political and economic interactions in the hinterland of the Mapungubwe polity by Dr Alexander Antonites was fascinating and sparked a lot of questions afterwards.

Professor Revil Mason Seminar
Dr. Ndlovu introducing Prof. Mason
Yesterday Professor Revil Mason gave a seminar on southern African Archaeology to the students, staff and guests of the Department of Anthropology and Archaeology of the University of Pretoria. The lecture was educational and it was fascinating to hear first hand accounts of now famous excavations in southern Africa. Professor Mason showed a series of images and explained each one in conjunction with interesting facts and some background information.
To thank Professor Mason for sharing his wealth of knowledge with the students, Kefilwe Rammutloa, the chairperson of the University of Pretoria Archaeological Society for students (UPAS), presented Professor Mason with a token of their appreciation.
The seminar was a very successful learning experience for all.
