  • ISSN : 0304-0798



A Bushman hunting kit (MM 649) comprising bow, quiver and 21 arrows, in the Campbell Collections of the University of Natal, which is believed to be of Southern Bushman origin, is descriptionbed, illustrated and compared with a unique Bushman hunting kit in the Natal Museum, which was found in a rock shelter in the Mhlwasini valley, Drakensberg, Natal, in 1926. Similarities to other Southern Bushman material in the South African Museum are also noted. The characteristic features of the Southern Bushman material are briefly compared with the Northern Bushman equipment in order to emphasize the likely provenance of the kit in the Campbell Collections.
