Two Holocene rock shelter deposits from the Knersvlakte, southern Namaqualand, South Africa
This paper describes the first excavations into two Holocene Later Stone Age (LSA) deposits in southern Namaqualand. The limestone shelters afforded excellent preservation, and the LSA sites contained material similar in many respects to shelters in the Cederberg range to the south.

In Reception Shelter the 1.40 m deposit yielded a basal age...[Show more]
