Zimbabwe is the only country in the world that takes its name from an archaeological site: Great Zimbabwe. The name Zimbabwe is an indigenous Shona word referring to a ‘house of stones’. The prefix Great was introduced by Europeans who arrived in the region around the 18th century, and it distinguishes this site from more than 360 similar but smaller recorded sites that are also found in Botswana, Mozambique and South Africa.
