Great Zimbabwe is only one of many similar ruins in present-day Zimbabwe, eastern Botswana, the northern Transvaal, Venda and parts of Mozambique (the Zimbabwe culture area). Using both contemporary and medieval ethnographic data, Huffman explains the layouts of the sites in the Zimbabwe ruins, the structuring of specific units and the symbolism built into individual walls. Stylized snakes and crocodiles, for instance, appear everywhere, a reflection of their pervasive symbolic presence within Shona society. Huffmann uses his archaeological data to show how certain tribal customs have changed.
