A note on iron age sites in the Zambezi valley, and on the escarpment in the Sipolilo district southern Rhodesia by K.R. Robinson, Historical Monuments Commission, Southern Rhodesia.

A good deal has been written on these ruins based on oral tradition and Portuguese records, mainly by Abraham(1959). Some connection between the Monomotapa dynasty and the ruins appears probable, but here we must confine ourselves to such archaeological evidence as is at present available and see what it tells us.
