Mapungubwe Reconsidered: Exploring beyond the rise and decline of the Mapungubwe state seeks to contribute to the body of knowledge about Mapungubwe, straddling such issues as the relationships between humans and the environment, management of mineral endowments and the form and impact of southern Africa’s global intercourse in this historical period.
Beyond these issues are profound social constructs about state legitimacy, quality of leadership, social stratification, gender relations and the consequences of material self-gratification.
Mapungubwe Reconsidered combines methodologies of archaeology, political science, economic history and international relations to weave, in a unique way, a storyline that enriches current knowledge on the history of southern Africa. This transdisciplinary approach is immeasurably enhanced not only by the co-operation among experts located in various universities; but also through entangling, in an unusual embrace, the methodologies of academia, policy-planning and community treasures of knowledge contained in oral history.
