Palaeolithic mega-lakes and early human occupation of the Kalahari, Botswana, Southern Africa
DGPS were employed in the field within a project to investigate archaeological artefact distributions, topography and landforms of the western Makgadikgadi basin, Kalahari Desert, Botswana. Logistical problems in both 2008 and 2009 reduced the intended survey activity in scope and geographic extent. Nonetheless, detailed data on the 3D spatial relationships of extensive MSA artefact scatters, barchan dune remnants and basin shorelines have been achieved. While data analysis continues, outputs to date include two papers in preparation and a major landscape archaeology grant application to AHRC.
