Not illustrated. 1893 Excerpt: . . . difficult to suppose were built by the natives, although stone krantzes (or strongholds on the hills) of inferior workmanship are common in both Bechuanaland and Manicaland, which were certainly made as defences against the Zulus. The native tradition assigns the Zimbabwe ruins to white men, who came long ago for the gold. If native tribes were strong und warlike, and the traders without firearms, it is possible that such fortresses may have been necessary for defence against them; but they would rather seem to have been erected against some civilised race like the Portuguese, by the Arab chiefs, whom the latter found in possession of the gold-bearing region. Dos Santos, in 1689, describes these ruins, and speaks of a Zimboe on a mountain (whereabouts is not clearly stated), to which the native king went yearly, at the first new moon in September, to visit the ancestral tombs. For eight days the people danced and drank beer, in honour of the Mozimos or ancestral spirits (the Sechuana Modimo), and a witch doctor was supposed to be possessed by the spirit of the dead king, and to prophesy to the living monarch. De Barros, in 1552, also describes these ruined stations more exactly, and speaks of an inscription, which has not, however, been found. The Arabs stated that the buildings were very ancient, and had been erected to protect the gold mines. Alvarez (wrongly quoted by Mr. Bent as Leo Africanus) attributes them to the devil. A letter now in Lisbon, dating 1721 A. d. , repeats the earlier accounts; and the natives say that the white men were poisoned by the black men--a story which, if it has any foundation, can hardly be very ancient among African migratory peoples. There is so far no evidence that the buildings need be regarded as very much older than the. . . This item ships from La Vergne,TN., [PU: General Books, LLC]
