Abstract [en]

The short report about the presentation of archaeological sites and heritage in Botswana was prepared after a two-week visit to Botswana, 25 July–7 August 2016. My visit was hosted by the Botswana National Museum, represented by Gaogakwe Phorano, Director, and Phillip Segadika, Head of the Division of Archaeology and Monuments. The visit included brief site visits to Three Chiefs Monument, Ntsweng excavations, Matsieng Footprints, Nyungwe site, Kazungula border crossing, Lesoma Monument, Old Kachikau remains, Kavimba Gateway trees and Savuti rock paintings as well as sightseeing in the Gaborone and Kasane areas. In this report I am not attempting to summarize the historical significance of each site. 

My report is based on two presentations I gave in Gaborone, in addition to some discussions with specialists I met and impressions gained from the sites I visited. I took part in a seminar “Towards a story-line development– a seminar on the proposed Ntsweng site museum” on the proposed Ntsweng Site Museum held in Molepolole on 29 July 2016. On that occasion I presented a talk entitled “Interpreting our heritage: telling stories that matter”. On 1 August 2016, I gave a second presentation on “Interpreting our heritage: issues of authenticity” at the Botswana National Museum.
