This study looks in general at the interaction between hunter-gatherers and agriculturalists across a perceived frontier, and more specifically, at the southwards movement of Bantu-speaking agriculturalists and their relationship with hunter-gatherers south and west of the Caldeon Valley, from the 16th to 19th century AD. Theoretical and practical approaches are taken from the ethnographic record and are applied to the investigation of evidence for the processes of interaction, cooperation and hostility across the frontier zone: stone tools, faunal and plant remains and ceramics.
