Archaeological sites

The PEOPLE team survey the alluvial terraces of the Modder, Riet, Vet, and Sand in the western Free State, as well as the major pans and springs located within their catchments, in search of archaeological and paleontological localities dated to the Middle and Late Pleistocene. Only a few sites of that kind are known, and almost all of them are located along the Modder River. The map below illustrates all the known sites in the region. The localities currently investigated by the PEOPLE team are shown in green.
