Excerpt from The Ruined Cities of Mashonaland: Being a Record of Excavation and Exploration in 1891

IN looking over this work for a second edition, I find little to add to the material as it appeared in the first, and next to nothing to alter. Sir John Willoughby has kindly supplied me with details con cerning five weeks'' excavation which he carried on the summer following the one which we Spent there, the results of which, however, appear only to have produced additional specimens of the objects we found - namely, crucibles with traces of gold, frag ments of decorated bowls, phalli, &c. - but no further object to assist us in unravelling the mystery of the primitive race which built the ruins.
