The word ‘ zimbabwe’ translates to house of stone. Research has finally proven that Great Zimbabwe was founded in the 11h century by a Bantu population of the Iron Age, the Shona. In 1905, British archaeologist David Randall-MacIver determined the ruins were medieval and built by the local African Bantu peoples. In 1929 his findings were confirmed by another British archaeologist, Gertrude Caton-Thompson.
