Recently published paper
Ghilraen Laue, a researcher from our Human Science Department here at the Museum recently published a paper on unexplored rock art in McAll's Cave, in the the Groot Winterhoek Mountains northwest of Port Elizabeth. McAll’s Cave, one of 38 recorded sites, contains exceptionally rich and well-preserved imagery. The range of images found in this shelter is representative of the rock art of the larger area.
