Lecture: ‘Rock art rocks’

2011-10-06 00:00

“ROCK Art Rocks” is the next presentation of Café Scientific.

Ndukuyakhe Ndlovu will speak on his research into the lesser known rock art of KwaZulu-Natal on October 11 at 5 pm for 5.30 pm at the KwaZulu-Natal Museum, 237 Jabu Ndlovu Street.

Though southern Africa is well known for its rock art, only certain areas have received the attention of rock art researchers. Ndlovu will focus on the rock art sites of Zululand, first recorded around 1949 and again in the 1970s.

Ndlovu is the Archaeology collections manager at the University of the Witwatersrand and a final year PhD candidate in the International Centre for Cultural and Heritage Studies at Newcastle University in Britain, researching the distribution of rock art in southern Africa.

Ndlovu previously studied at the universities of the Witwatersrand and Rhodes and has extensive experience in heritage management in South Africa, having worked for both national and provincial heritage authorities in various capacities.

There will be refreshments and a car guard will be on duty.

Café Scientific is presented by Jive Media Africa in association with the Moses Kotane Institute.
