From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Wilton culture is the name given by archaeologists to an archaeological culture which was common to parts of south and east Africa around six thousand years ago.

It was first described by John Hewitt after he excavated with the collaboration of C. W. Wilmot a cave on the farm Wilton.[1]

Occupation sites include that at Kalambo Falls.

Wilton culture is broadly analogous to the European mesolithic and microliths are a common artefact type. Later examples of the culture however indicate usage of iron.
