The aim of this book is firstly to establish chronology of Later Stone Age settlement in Waterber plateau and secondly to investigate the particular influence of the Waterberg ecosystem on Later Stone Age settlement patterns and on the lifestyle of the inhabitants and their utilisation of resources of this area. Finally, the most complex study presented here is the study of the influence of the immigrant Iron Age farmers on the indigenous Later Stone Age hunter-gatherers.
