The stone artefacts and radiocarbon dates analysed from the Vredenburg Peninsula archaeological survey of 1991-92 show a 6000-year-long lithic sequence with an earlier, more formal set of assemblages and a later more informal set.

The wreck and its contents lie within South African territorial waters and are protected by South African heritage legislati...
Article
Excavations at several sites along the coast around Saldanha Bay and in the mountains overlooking the Swartland have revealed the remains of two quite distinct archaeological groups during the last two thousand years. In one group of sites, formally retouched stone tools, small ostrich eggshell beads along with a low density of ceramics are associa...
