I have uploaded a shapefile and I am simply trying to calculate some simple areas of provinces (and I know their areas from Wikipedia). My map is from Zimbabwe, and I have saved the project, reprojected all layers, and saved everything as WGS 84 / UTM Zone 36S. The units are all in metres.
When I use $AREA function in field calculator, the areas come around very very small. I expect areas in order the thousands of square kilometers, but I get numbers like 3m2.
Why are my results so far out?
Edit: I've added images of the property settings
