    Early iron manufacturing industries in semi-arid, south-eastern Zimbabwe2007In: Journal of African Archaeology, ISSN 1612-1651, E-ISSN 2191-5784, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 315-338Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent research about the history of human settlement and impact on the environment has focused on part of the semi-arid, south-eastern lowveld of Zimbabwe. Two iron-smelting sites were excavated in 2004. Both sites indicated use of local magnetite resources for production beyond immediate subsistence needs. The Kwali Camp smelting site was used by some of the first farmers in the region, associated with the Gokomere tradition on the southeastern Zimbabwean plateau. The Mhangula smelting site was used in a later period and probably supplied iron to elite communities associated with the Zimbabwe State.

    A glass bead sequence for southern Africa from the 8th to the 16th century AD2011In: Journal of African Archaeology, ISSN 1612-1651, E-ISSN 2191-5784, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 67-84Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Many tens of thousands of glass beads have been recovered from well-dated 8(th) to 16(th) century archaeological sites in southern Africa, making it possible to develop a temporally sensitive bead sequence which is made up of seven series. The series were developed based on morphological characteristics and recent chemical analysis has confirmed those results. The bead series are described in detail along with possible origins for the glass used to create them. Chemical composition of the glasses used to make the beads demonstrates that three major changes in glass chemistry occurred between the 8(th) and 15(th) centuries, suggesting the different glasses originated in geographically disparate regions and indicating that trade patterns connecting southern Africa to other Indian Ocean entities were far from static.
