We started with the implementation of the GRAP in January 2018 and is continuously involved in the grave relocation for the project.

The Clanwilliam Dam Project, South Africa

Our team was appointed in 2014 by the South African department of Water and sanitation to implement the archeological management plan associated with the raising of the Clanwilliam Dam wall. We conducted extensive documentation of landscapes, historical and colonial period structures, excavated and analysed 22 archaeological sites, documented 29 rock art sites and relocated 70 graves. We have also completed the successful removal and relocation of two rock art panels. Along with the archaeological and historical documentation, we initiated the Clanwilliam Dam Community Project, that was ably managed by the Children’s Book Network and The Clanwilliam Living Landscape.
