K2 is an Iron Age site approximately 1 km from Mapungubwe in South Africa. Archaeological excavations were conducted here between 1995 and 1999, intending to differentiate between stock enclosure, midden and living area and also to find human skeletal remains. An attempt was also made to determine changes in fauna and ceramics in terms of time and horizontal distribution. Human skeletal remains, potsherds, beads, animal bones, iron fragments and several clay figurine fragments were found.
