Yes i had to climb it!! :(

About Magoro Hill:

Magoro Hill is a mid-nineteenth century stonewalled settlement associated with Venda speakers. There was a siege on the Hill in the 1800's that started on the 8th of August. We were lucky enough to excavate on that same day! We found tons of beads, pottery and bone!

I won't go to much in detail about what we found, and i won't show pictures of finds or sites too closely as i don't want to reveal anything that the Unisa Archeologist want to publish.

I will however show some pictures of the surrounding areas / dig / good times!

Sit back and enjoy the show :)
