South Africa - History
While convincing archaeological evidence seems to confirm that South Africa 's history goes back to the dawn of time, our written history is much closer to the present day. The 15th century Portuguese navigator, Bartholomeu Dias , was the first recorded European to set foot in this part of the world in 1488. However it was the Dutch , very influential in the history of South Africa, who established the first proper settlement in the form of a small refreshment station . The station, set up in 1652 to supply the ships of the Dutch East India Company on their long journeys to and from the spice islands of the East Indies, grew into the city we know today as Cape Town The arrival of the first Europeans at the foot of Africa met with little resistance from the Cape's only human inhabitants, the

Proud to be South African - Celebrating 11 years of Freedom World Heritage Sites Cradle of Humankind

Only 45 minutes from the famous Goldfields of South Africa, nestling in a peaceful rural valley, lies an invaluable ancient site, the Cradle of Humankind - a place where our ancestors once roamed free.
Some of their fate was extinction many millions of years ago; others became part of a long evolutionary journey to the present. Today their fossilised remains hold many clues to our beginnings, and perhaps even a key to our future.
The Cradle of Humankind, a listed World Heritage Site in the provinces of Gauteng and the North West in South Africa, is the world's richest hominid site. A global legacy and home of our ancestors.

(abridged extract from The South African Yearbook
summary here The early inhabitants
Humankind had its earliest origins in Africa. South Africa is rich in fossil evidence of the evolutionary history of the human family, going back several million years. Modern humans have lived in the region for over 100 000 years. The small, mobile bands of Stone Age hunter-gatherers, who created a wealth of rock art, were the ancestors of the Khoekhoe and San of historical times (the 'Hottentots' and 'Bushmen' of early European terminology).
The former (Khoekhoe) were those who, some 2 000 years ago, adopted a pastoralist lifestyle herding sheep and, later, cattle. Whereas the hunter-gatherers (San) adapted to local environments and were scattered across the subcontinent, the herders sought out the pasturelands between modern Namibia and the Eastern Cape , which, generally, are near the coast.

South Africa History - The Road to Freedom and Democracy Early days
If the history of South Africa is in large part one of racial divisiveness, today it can also be seen as the story of a journey through massive obstacles towards the creation, from tremendous diversity, of a single nation whose long-time dream of unity and common purpose is today being realised.
The earliest representatives of this country's diversity were the San and Khoekhoe peoples (otherwise known individually as the Bushmen and Hottentots or Khoikhoi; collectively called the Khoisan). Both were resident in the southern tip of the continent for thousands of years before its written history began with the arrival of European seafarers. Before that, modern human beings had lived here for more than 100 000 years - indeed, the country is an archaeological treasure chest.

, created a "Book of Records" to settle pub bets while promoting their brand of beer. Guinness named aristocrat Fiennes, for example, the "Worlds Greatest Living Explorer" even though he is not an explorer and says so in interviews.

South Africa
Although the nomadic San (also known as Bushmen) have possibly lived in Southern Africa since around 100,000 BC, they didn't reach the Cape of Good Hope until about 2000 years ago. Because of the close relationship between the San and the Khoikhoi peoples, who intermarried and coexisted, both are often referred to as Khoisan. By the 15th century most arable land had been settled by encroaching Bantu pastoral tribes. Southern Africa became a popular stop for European crews after Vasco de Gama opened the Cape of Good Hope spice route in 1498, and, by the mid-17th century, scurvy and shipwreck had induced Dutch traders to opt for a permanent settlement in Table Bay on the site of present-day Cape Town. The mostly Dutch burghers pushed slowly north, decimating the Khoisan with violence and disease as they went. Towards the end of the 18th century and with Dutch power fading, Britain predictably jumped in for another piece of Africa. It was hoped that British settlers would inhabit a buffer zone between skirmishing pastoral Boers and the Xhosa, but most of the British immigrant families retreated to town, entrenching the rural-urban divide that is evident in white South Africa even today. Although slavery was abolished in 1833, the division of labour on the basis of colour served all whites too well for any real attempt to change.

South Africa
People have inhabited Southern Africa for thousands of years. Members of the Khoisan language groups are the oldest surviving inhabitants of the land; however, only a few are left in South Africa today, and they are located in the western sections. Most of today's black South Africans belong to the Bantu language group, which migrated south from central Africa, settling in the Transvaal region sometime before AD 100. The Nguni, ancestors of the Zulu and Xhosa, occupied most of the eastern coast by 1500. The Portuguese were the first Europeans to reach the Cape of Good Hope, arriving in 1488. However, permanent white settlement did not begin until 1652, when the Dutch East India Company established a provisioning station on the Cape. In subsequent decades, French Huguenot refugees, the Dutch, and Germans began to settle in the Cape. Collectively, they form the Afrikaner segment of today's population. The establishment of these settlements had far-reaching social and political effects on the groups already settled in the area, leading to upheaval in these societies and the subjugation of their people. By 1779, European settlements extended throughout the southern part of the Cape and east toward the Great Fish River. It was here that Dutch authorities and the Xhosa fought the first frontier war. The British gained control of the Cape of Good Hope at the end of the 18th century. Subsequent British settlement and rule marked the beginning of a long conflict between the Afrikaners and the English.

Your Definitive Education Resource Website for the United States. Updated Daily. K12 Academics.
Home Study Abroad South Africa To ease Cape labor shortages slaves were imported from Indonesia, Madagascar, and India. Furthermore, troublesome leaders, often of royal descent, were banished from Dutch colonies to South Africa. This group of slaves eventually gave rise to a population that now identifies themselves as "Cape Malays," a predominantly Muslim group. Cape Malays have traditionally been accorded a higher social status by the European colonists - many became wealthy landowners, but became increasingly dispossessed as Apartheid developed. Cape Malay mosques in District Six were spared, and now serve as monuments for the destruction that occurred around them. Most of the descendants of these slaves, who often married with Dutch settlers, were later classified together with the remnants of the Khoikhoi as Cape Coloreds. Further intermingling within the Cape Colored population itself, as well as with Xhosa and other South African people, now means that they constitute roughly 50% of the population in the Western Cape Province. Great Britain seized the Cape of Good Hope area in 1797 during the Fourth Anglo-Dutch War. The Dutch declared bankruptcy, and the British annexed the Cape Colony in 1805. The British continued the frontier wars against the AmaXhosa, pushing the eastern frontier eastward through a line of forts established along the Fish River and consolidating it by encouraging British settlement. Due to pressure of abolitionist societies in Britain, the British parliament first stopped its global slave trade in 1806, then abolished slavery in all its colonies in 1833.

SOUTH AFRICA: The Transition Continues
by Wayne D. Toombs Overview The Republic of South Africa, a nation slightly less than twice the size of the state of Texas (1,219,912 square kilometers, is located at the southern tip of the continent of Africa. South Africa has nearly 4,900 kilometers of international boundaries that separate it from Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland and Zimbabwe, while completely surrounding Lesotho. In addition, the 2,881-kilometer coastline, which borders the Atlantic Ocean on the west and the Indian Ocean on the south and east, is fairly regular and has few natural harbors. The country is divided into nine provinces; Eastern Cape, Free State, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga, North-West, Northern Cape, Northern Province, Western Cape. The capital city is Pretoria, Cape Town is the legislative center and Bloemfontein the judicial center. South Africa’s population is 43,586,097 (census was taken in October 1996). The population’s racial make-up is 75.2% black, 13.6% white, 8.6% Colored and 2.6% Indian. South Africans represent a rich array of ethnic backgrounds but the idea of ethnicity became highly explosive during the apartheid era, when the government used it for political and racial purposes. Government officials imposed fairly rigid ethnic or tribal categories on a fluid social reality, giving each black African tribal label, or identity, within a single racial classification. Apartheid doctrines taught that each black population would eventually achieve maturity as a nation, just as the Afrikaner (white) people, in their view, had done.

Pg. 94 So after a lifetime of making fun of retarded people, your wife gives birth to a child with Down’s. The sickening irony would amuse you, were you not so crushed under the severity and weight of God’s cruel blow. You try to find joy in tending to his special needs, but you subconsiously spend the rest of your life favoring your “normal” son, Jake. Ultimately, though, Jake’s self-destructive bent (made evident by his violent alcoholism) proves to undermine that love as well, leaving you alone and wretched in a pit of your own despair. Pg. 102 Knowing full-well that urban warfare is a lose-lose situation (with rampant civilian casualties and myriad instances of friendly fire), you still decide to push the 2nd and 3rd batallions into Mogadishu. The locals pin your troops inside a blind alley, then all hope is lost when two choppers are felled by Soviet-made surface-to-air missles. One of your soldiers is dragged through the streets by hostiles and your name is dragged through the international mud after a lengthy court martial proceeding. The Judge Advocate uses your case as an example and sentences you, harshly, to life in a military brig, but during the sixth month you lose your life in the prison laundry room after challenging a dishonorably discharged corporal to a “cut fight.” He wins only because, as you’re about to slash his Achilles, his bunk-mate throws a scalding hot bedsheet (straight from the dryer) over your eyes.
