Dr Nicholas Zachariou

My interests lie in the interface between the colonial and pre-colonial spheres, the associated milieu or bricolage, and how each interacts and influences the other, particularly through representation, landscape use and material culture. My PhD thesis was titled ‘A Biography of Land and Landscape: the Archaeology of the Sak River Mission Station 1799-1900’, and addresses the biographies of archaeological sites in the semi-desert Karoo region of South Africa through visual and written text, landscape and archaeology.
