Recap: 2013 Mapungubwe / K2 / Schroda visit

Last year the archaeology honours students of UP went on excavation. The weekend during the two week field-school the students took a trip to Mapungubwe, K2 and Schroda. However on the way to Mapungubwe National Park, we ran out of road:

A kind farmer helped us get there by going through his farm, and we finally arrived:

A lot was learned that weekend and I’m not exaggerating when I say that we all were starstruck by these three archaeological sites! We were truly honored that we could see these sites and it is not an experience we would soon forget!
