Field survey and excavation in the Khwebe Hills of Botswana form part of a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship project on the Archaeology of Migrations in Africa. Here, the BA Postdoctoral Fellow describes the first two seasons of fieldwork, which concentrated on the investigation of two sites, one associated with the BaTawana, who migrated into the area in the early 19th century and the other a missionary establishment of the London Missionary Society that was occupied during the 1890s.
