Notes on the Geography of Zimbabwe: Great Zimbabwe: Photo 7
Through his British South Africa Company, Rhodes hired Theodore Bent, a student of Phoenicia who had traveled widely in the eastern Mediterranean. The result, in part, was a book by Bent, The Ruined Cities of Mashonaland, 1892. In it, Bent fulminates against the accumulating claptrap: "The names of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba were on everybody's lips, and have become so distasteful to us that we never expect to hear them again without an involuntary shudder."
(See Bent, p. 67.)
