Abstract

Recent research has established that rock engravings, made by agriculturist communities, occur commonly in two contrasting environments in the KwaZulu-Natal region. Those from savanna areas, which are the subject of this paper, have as their predominant theme the Zulu homestead plan. The practice is associated with the building of stone walling; it probably started late in precolonial times and continued until a few decades ago. The art has a male emphasis and much of it seems to have been done by boys.
