30 years of TUCSIN – sharing of knowledge is one principle of TUCSIN – therefore 19 scientists and 2 writers from USA, Canada, Germany, South Africa and Namibia made the effort to report on their past and present activities in Namibia. The articles span a time frame of more than 10 million years and cover a large spectrum of subjects.


Issues concerning the whole country:
Migration in Namibia; Examples of development and progress; and for the first time published in Namibia: the chronology of the Namibian rock art.

Articles arranged along a regional approach from north to south:
Kavango area:
Language use and origins; archaeology & iron production; economic trust game-experiments;
The central northern area:
The discovery of Otavipithecus namibiensis: the most significant fossil find ever made in Namibia; Political identities? Multiple cultures and their clothing traditions; Exploration of similarities between people of different ethnic origin in Fransfontein; The Nyae Nyae Village Schools, an example for appropriate, community-based education projects for San communities; Joint research efforts and mutual capacity building of Canadian, UNAM and TUCSIN students on HIV/AIDS.
The central and southern area:
The integration of the “Ex-GDR-Children”; The Rehoboth Basters and their farming system; Pre-Baster population of the Rehoboth area and first-hand results on archaeological excavations; Traditionalism and modernity amongst the Khoekhoen (Nama) of Berseba; Last but not least an archaeological topic deep in the south: The rock-shelter “Apollo 11”, the oldest drawings from the African continent & some of the oldest evidence for artistic expression worldwide.
