Evolution of Zimbabwe

How the state of zimbabwe has changed from 1400-2014

In Zimbabwe there was trade in many different kinds of metal working, such as: gold, iron, and copper(ornaments). there is evidance of Chinese, Persian, and Syrian artifacts (1300's) The shona built their land on a plateau. this land had an abundant amount of rainfall and was prone to wildfires. the earth on the plateau was rich in granite, iron, gold, and copper. Gold in Great Zimbabwe was concidered just another metal, like iron or copper.

The great Zimbabwe (capital city) was almost 200 acres and could hold up to 1,800 people. The language of Zimbabwe was Shona. There were two building sites in Zimbabwe. One of them was two boulders connected by a hill. This created two courtyards, this was called "The Great Enclosure."

1400-1500

Bantu-speaking farmers were known as shona. they rose cattle, and came to the plateau in around A.D. 300. The kings complex was described as expensive, with gold everything, and ivory candlesticks.King Mwene Mupta of the Zimbabwe tribe, conquered neighboring cities and gave them the name of Monomupta. these tribes started to break out in 1490.

During the excavation of Great Zimbabwe,many of the artifacts got dammaged. The amature archeologish to blame for this is Richard Nicklin Hall. most of the artifacts were dammaged in the process of trying to dig up gold.

today Zimbabwe's government is parliamentary democratic. Zimbabwe is not the best vacationing place because of all of the governmental/currency issues.
