    Default Kungwini 4x4 Ruins

    We spent last weekend at Kungwini and explored the ruin out there and they sparked my interest. I finally found this article today and it’s a really interesting read, not only about Kungwini but stone structures found all over the Magaliesberg and Suikerbosrand. In case anyone else had been wondering about the history, here’s the link:

    Thanks Roelf, will do, have read and watch a lot on the subject over the years.

    Great Zimbabwe & Mapungubwe could have had some part to play in the style of building, iron smelting techniques and the religious significance of the design, interesting thought. I wonder if the groups that made it down this far were descendants of the Shona people - they certainly came for the north.
