The Goodwin Series volumes are companions to the South African Archaeological Bulletin and are distributed to members of the South African Archaeological Society and the Association of Southern African Professional Archaeologists. The series began in 1972 in honour of the late Professor A J H Goodwin, the founder of the South African Archaeological Society and the first professional archaeologist in South Africa. Each of the nine issues published between 1972 and 2006 has a theme relating to the study of archaeology in sub-Saharan Africa, ranging from Quaternary Studies to Rock Art and Historical Archaeology. Individual issues are published at irregular intervals according to the availability of funds and interest expressed by prospective guest editors. All papers are peer-reviewed.
