About: Chronology of Namibian History. From Pre-historical Times to Independent Namibia

A major shortcoming of Namibia's historical records has to be borne in mind: the indigenes were considered to be nothing but objects of European intervention. They do not turn up as makers of history, and the impression is created that they lived "outside" the country's history. The chronology before you makes an honest attempt to rectify this bias, but it has to be understood that this effort is merely an additional stepping stone in the cumulative effort to write up the very complex history of this young nation state. Another major shortcoming of the records is that references to the role of Namibian women in the making of their country's history, and in bringing about its liberation, are all too rare, and this topic is deserving of much additional research in the future. My special thanks go to Andre du Pisani of the University of Namibia for his invaluable suggestions and stimulating ideas, and to Werner Hillebrecht of the National Library of Namibia for guiding me to the appropriate reference sources.
