In this documentary, in the form of a satellite map, you can zoom in on over 150 ancient ruins of Africa. Thus, you can actually see the ancient village of Mukuni, where Dr. David Livingstone visited, the village of Thaba-Bosiu, Lesotho where King Moeshoeshoe fought off the white settlers and hostile African armies. See the ruins at Kilwa Kisiwani, the Great Enclosure of Zimbabwe, or the location of Stone Age rock paintings at Twyfelfontein, Namiba.

The locations were determined by the following resources:

• Marq de Villiers’ book Into Africa: A Journey • Wikipedia’s List of World Heritage Sites in Africa • Suggestions from member participants of
