The Acquisition of Ceramics by Hunter-Gatherers on the Middle Zambezi in the First and Second Millennium AD

Journal of African Archaeology, Volume 11 (2), 2013, pages 197-209, DOI 10.3213/2191-5784-10243

Abstract
An archaeological survey of the Linyanti and Liambezi marshlands in north-eastern Namibia revealed a number of hunting and fishing sites with first millennium AD farming community ceramics as well as evidence suggesting the adoption of ceramic technology by hunter-gatherers in this area during the second millennium AD. These finds have implications for the archaeology of recent southern African hunter-gatherers: they suggest both practical criteria for the recognition of ceramics obtained by trade during the spread of food production through southern Africa in the last two millennia, and point to a likely scenario for the appearance sui generis of ceramics associated with Khoe-speaking nomadic pastoralists.

Résumé
Une prospection archéologique des marécages de Linyanti et Liambezi dans le nord-est de la Namibie a révélé l'existence de nombreux sites de chasseurs-pêcheurs qui ont livré  des céramiques associées aux communautés d'agriculteurs du premier millénaire de notre ère, ainsi que des indices de l'adoption de la technologie céramique par les chasseurs-cueilleurs dans cette région au deuxième millénaire de notre ère. Ces découvertes ont des implications pour l'archéologie des chasseurs-cueilleurs récents d'Afrique du Sud : elles suggèrent les deux critères pratiques pour la reconnaissance des céramiques obtenues par des échanges durant la période de diffusion de la production alimentaire en Afrique du Sud ces deux derniers millénaires et indiquent l'existence d'un scenario probable pour l'apparition sui generis de céramiques associées aux pasteurs nomades de langue Khoe.
