Great Zimbabwe by Iain Pearson

Great Zimbabwe

Great Zimbabwe was the centre of an important African civiisation and was inhabited from the 12th to the 16th centur. The Great Enclosure dates to around 1450 - when the Shona civilisation was at it's peak. It is the largest single ancient building in sub-Saharan Africa, and is a dry-stone wall 250m in circumference and up to 11m in height.
