Abstract

Southern hemisphere astronomers are well placed to observe globular clusters in the Galaxy, and significant work has been done on them in South Africa. This brief review covers research on colour-magnitude diagrams and spectroscopic analyses of cluster stars as well as on miscellaneous stars representing late evolutionary stages.

Key words
