Great Zimbabwe is a vast stone complex after which the country is now named.
There is now consensus that this complex was built by the Shona people. This was not always thus and some earlier archaeological work was done consistent with Einstein’s observation “it is the theory that decides what we can observe”.
A prior archeologist employed by Cicil John Rhodes was so convinced that the structure could not be of African origin that he ordered around 1.5 meters of top soil (containing the detritus of African occupation) to be removed from the complex and dumped in the veld.
