Abstract

Recent excavations at Sibebe Shelter in north-west Swaziland have recovered a stratified sequence from the Middle Stone Age to the Iron Age. Preliminary analysis of the Middle Stone Age material indicates a predominance of unifacial and bifacial points, possibly suggesting the use of the shelter by seasonal hunters. The Late Stone Age assemblage shows affinities with Oakhurst/Albany assemblages or with an early phase of the Interior Wilton.
