The following new content has been added to the Aluka collections.

The Heinz Rüther Collection

The cultural heritage site, Great Zimbabwe, has been added to the Heinz Rüther Collection. 831 digital objects, including 3D models, aerial photographs, and high-resolution photographs, have been added to the more than 7,000 geo-spatial objects and images already available. This adds to already extensive documentation of cultural heritage sites and landscapes from across Africa documented by Prof. Rüther and his team at the University of Cape Town.

By about 1270, a wealthy elite emerged at Great Zimbabwe and started laying the foundations for an elaborate urban complex than grew into state that traded in gold, ivory, cloth, and glass beads with the Swahili city states along the Indian Ocean coast. At its peak in the 14th and 15th centuries, Great Zimbabwe was one of the largest cities in sub-Saharan Africa, a metropolis of more than 700 hectares composed of elite residences, ritual centres, public forums, markets, and the houses of commoners and artisans. Great Zimbabwe was added to World Heritage List by UNESCO in 1986.
