Social and Cultural Traits in South Africa

SocialSouth Africa is one of the cradles of the human species, being the location of the world's oldest art objects. Snail shell necklaces have been found and dated to over 75,000 years ago, around the same time that the human species first started exploring outside the African continent. Historically, the country has seen varied waves of immigration, leading to the modern-day South Africa being termed as the 'Rainbow Nation' by Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
