Great Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe

Today’s UNESCO World Heritage site, the city of Great Zimbabwe served as the center of political power in the country’s Iron Age. The city fell into ruins around the 15th century, mostly due to exhaustion of gold mines, which were the people’s primary source of income – the gold trade is believed to have extended as far as China.
