Abstract

In this paper, we assess critically a recent publication that seeks to attribute most developments in the later prehistory of southern Africa to Indian gold-seekers. We show that the book has all the characteristics of 'cult archaeology', resurrecting the prejudices of the nineteenth century and dismissing modern African studies with contempt. Indo-Africa is examined in depth in the belief that it is more profitable to attack than to ignore such publications.
