Van Riebeeck Society
The Society established in 1918 to publish primary sources in southern African history, which were inaccessible to the average South African. Since then it has published a volume for every year since then. The volumes of the Van Riebeeck Society have often reflected the period in which they have been published: Dutch period, British -- 1820 settlers, amongst others; South African / Anglo-Boer; travellers' accounts . Writings of black South Africans, more women, and more unusual topics are now sourced.

H-SAfrica is an international electronic discussion group dedicated to the promotion of all aspects of South and Southern Africa history and culture, and Southern African studies in general. A member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine.
