Summary:
The local basin in the Kalambo River valley above the famous Falls on the boundary between Zambia and Tanzania provides one of the longest and richest records of human activity so far recovered from a single site in the African continent. Successive human occupation levels and horizons cover the past 60,000 years from the close of the Acheulian Industrial Complex to the present day. This third, and final, volume of this major site report deals with the Middle and Earlier Stone Age period.
