To Kunene from the Cape - historical and archaeological encounters

This map logs several centuries and sources of information for the south-western corner of Africa: archaeological finds and analyses; early European accounts in the south-western corner of Africa, starting from the emerging Cape colony of the 1600s; and places, encounters and events recorded in miscellaneous historical texts and more recent historiography.

Literature references and a chronology of encounters in southwestern Africa are available here. Images and observations from a journey northwards to Kunene Region (Namibia) from Cape Town by Sian Sullivan and Mike Hannis in Aug-Oct 2017 are available here
