By George Robert Gayre of Gayre and Nigg. Did the black Shona tribe  really build the stone city of Great Zimbabwe, or was it the work of an outside race who were absorbed into the native population?

This question is answered in this work by the founder of the Mankind Quarterly journal.

Using solid archaeological, cultural and racial typology, it proves that racial outsiders from the Mediterranean and the Middle East were responsible for the stone structures at Great Zimbabwe and similar, but smaller surrounding sites stretching into northern South Africa. First published in Rhodesia in 1972, this work has been long-suppressed for political reasons, despite its basic thesis having been proven with the DNA link of the Lemba people to the Middle East.

Afrocentrists continue to claim that the Shona tribe built the stone structures, but Gayre proved that the Shona artefacts found at the site were placed there only after they conquered the country and drove out or absorbed the previous inhabitants.

Gayre mentions the Lemba oral tradition that their male ancestors came by boat (from a country to the north which contained large cities) in order to obtain gold. He also draws attention to the numerous Caucasian features and customs displayed by the Lemba.
