Data for a study investigating evidence of early urban development on pre-European small settlements distributed on the western part of the Shashe-Shashane river confluence area in south-western Zimbabwe.

The study made use of a multi-disciplinary approach involving archaeological, ethnographic and GIS techniques to develop an understanding of the nature of settlements, and this was guided by surveys and excavations to explore the development of later farming communities (LFC) in the early to mid-second millennium AD attributed to Leopard’s Kopje and Khami cultural traditions of the Later Iron Age.
