Abstract

The Mabhija area contains the largest concentration of iron-working sites yet known in Natal. One site with its double furnaces is described in detail. The iron smelting dates to the latter part of the Iron Age and, through oral history, it can be linked with an Nguni group of the pre-colonial era.
