Description: "Arquivos dos Dembos / Ndembu Archives": Documentary heritage submitted by Angola and Portugal and recommended for inclusion in the Memory of the World Register in 2011. Consisting of some 1,160 manuscript items on a variety of supports from the late 17th century to the early 20th century, the Ndembu archives are uniquely valuable to scholarship in history, anthropology and linguistics. They bear testimony to the transformation of an essentially oral southern African culture, through the assimilation of the Portuguese language and its repercussion on both Portugal and Brazil.
