Images of Southern Africa

Here is a collection of images selected to represent a range of areas/topics with the intention that they should help teachers and pupils with their work on Southern Africa. The images, commentaries and ideas for further exploration are aimed primarily at post-16 students but, with increased teacher input, they can be used with younger students.

We are grateful to members of the GA's International Committee and to Dr Alan Lester of Sussex University for their comments on the descriptions that accompany these images.
