I am trying so hard not to make a joke about prawns.

I get to go to South Africa to do field work next summer, hurray! I know very little about South African history and culture beyond what I get from the (US) media. I'd like to read a few books between now and then to try and get caught up.

I'll be working on an archaeological dig near Mossel Bay for about a month. I'll be spending a lot of time staring at the back wall of a cave, but I'll have some free time to get out and interact with people on the weekends. In general I'm just looking to get some basic knowledge about the culture and history of the place, but bonus points for stuff written from an anthropological perspective.
