DIEPKLOOF ROCK SHELTER

BLUE ROUTE

This is our destination near Elands Bay above the Verlorenvlei River. It is in a quartzite sandstone formation and contains one of the most complete and continuous later Middle Stone Age sequences in Southern Africa. About 270 fragments of purposely engraved ostrich eggshells were found in this cave, suggesting that collective identities and individualistic expressions are clearly communicated, showing the development of culture in early man.
