A History Almost Forgotten Prof. European travelers from Germany, Portugal, and Britain were astonished to learn of this powerful African civilization in the interior of southern Africa.
Like others before him, Mauch refused to believe that indigenous Africans could have built such an extensive network of monuments made of granite stone. Thus, Mauch assumed that the Great Zimbabwe monuments were created by biblical characters from the north: No consideration was given to the possibility of local indigenous Africans having built the ruins of Great Zimbabwe, because European writers generally agreed that Africans did not have the capacity to build anything of significance, particularly not monuments made with skilled stone masonry.
InBritish imperialist and colonizer Cecil Rhodes conquered a large portion of southern African and had the region named after himself. Northern Rhodesia modern Zambia and Southern Rhodesia modern Zimbabwe came under British control and Rhodes echoed the theme of Mauch as he argued that the Great Zimbabwe monuments were build by foreigners.
To promote his goal of misrepresenting the origins of Zimbabwe, Rhodes established the Ancient Ruins Company and financed men such as James Theodore Bent, who was sent to Zimbabwe by the British Association of Science, and sponsored by Rhodes.
Inthe British continued with their falsification agenda as British archaeologist Richard Hall was hired to investigate the Great Zimbabwe site. Hall went out of his way to eliminate archeological evidence which would have proven an indigenous African origin of Great Zimbabwe.
He removed about two meters deep of archeological remains, which effectively destroyed the evidence that would have established an indigenous African origin of the site.
It was in that British archeologist Gertrude Caton-Thompson led the first all-female excavation. Caton-Thompson investigated the site and was able to definitively argue in her work, The Zimbabwe Culture: She assessed the available archeological evidence artifacts, nearby dwellingsand the oral tradition of the modern Shona-speaking people, and compared them to the ancient sites to determine the African foundation of Great Zimbabwe.

President Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe This distortion of the history of Zimbabwe has had an enduring legacy.
The colonial era - had a destructive impact on the daily lives of native Zimbabweans. Not only was their heritage stolen, but the best farmland and resources were also taken by British colonists. This 90 years of domination and oppressive colonial rule was fueled by the ideas of Cecil Rhodes, who had the greatest colonial scheme of any modern imperialist.Agreed.
