Research project: Bundu Farm: a pan site with Middle and Later Stone age lithics and faunal remains in the Northern Cape, South Africa - Dormant - Dormant

Currently Active: 
No

The Bundu Farm site represents an accumulation of archaeological material within pan deposits and comprises lithic artefacts associated with well-preserved faunal material.

The overall aim of excavation work at the site is to assess the range of material, its date and the level of association of the faunal and lithic artefacts.

Analysis of the site forms the core of higher research at the University of Southampton. This aims to assess land-use in the Northern Cape during Fauresmith-Middle Stone Age. The project at Bundu therefore aims to recover sufficient data to allow for environmental reconstruction and land-use patterning.
