The Northern Cape’s archaeological past.

The Northern Cape Province boasts an enormous wealth of archaeological sites and resources that provide perspectives on our past that are not available in any other, written or oral, form. Archaeological study of these sites is, except in the most recent instances, the only means of discovering and understanding the pre-colonial history of the Northern Cape.

Many of the sites are of national or even international significance. They are unique, non-renewable and fragile.

Archaeological sites in the province cover more than a million years of human history.
