Postdoc position : Matatiele Archaeology Rock Art

[Emplois, bourses, prix]

Johannesburg : University of the Witwatersrand

The MARA programme (Matatiele Archaeology Rock Art) at the University of the Witwatersrand is offering a postdoctoral fellowship funded by the National Research Foundation’s African Origins Platform. The fellowship is a two-year stipendiary position based at the Rock Art Research Institute.

Now entering its fourth year, the Programme seeks to redress the imbalance in the history of research in the mountainous Matatiele region of the former apartheid homeland of the ’Transkei’. The first systematic archaeological survey has yielded over 200 sites, 168 containing rock art. Analysis of finds from excavated shelters is on-going, and has produced material (chiefly lithics, macrobotanicals, and metals) pertaining especially to the period of forager/farmer interaction.
