Abstract

This research focused on introductory documentation of archaeological heritage, specifically dry-stone walls and grain bins found in the settlement of Mukaro, Gutu, showing how the heritage is linked to the people of Mukaro specifically the MoyoNyakuvengwa. The most important part of this study was to give a record of the type of heritage found in Mukaro through documentation processes like conditional survey, geo mapping among others. The other aspect of this research highlights how and why the people of the MoyoNyakuvengwa are linked to the ancient settlements found in hills namely Mbwarume, Mhusha, Makachura and other small kopjes. It should be noted that since this is a preliminary documentation of the archaeological heritage of the settlement of Mukaro, there has been inclusion of the origin of the people of Mukaro, their original area of ruling, how and why they were dispossessed of their area. This helps in getting to know why the study is important since there is an outcry by the MoyoNyakuvengwa people who claim that they need to monitor and safeguard above mentioned sites as they used to do before colonization.
