Hall, M and Borland, CH 1982, 'The Indian connection: an assessment of Hromnik's' Indo-Africa'' , The South African Archaeological Bulletin, 37 (136) , pp. 75-80.Full text not available from this repository.
In this paper, we assess critically a recent publication that seeks to attribute most developments in the later prehistory of southern Africa to Indian gold-seekers. We show that the book has all the characteristics of 'cult archaeology', resurrecting the prejudices of the nineteenth century and dismissing modern African studies with contempt. 'Indo-Africa' is examined in depth in the belief that it is more profitable to attack than to ignore such publications.
