Archaeological Diggings - Mossel Bay, South Africa

During July 2000, Archaeological diggings took place at Mossel Bay after middle stone age Human remains dating back to possibly 250 000 years were found. Research was conducted and students from the New York State University (under leadership of Prof. Marean) visited the Garden Route for this event. Peter Nilssen of the South African Museum in Cape Town led the South African team. He presented an informative and interesting talk and slide show in the Granary of the Bartolomeu Dias Museum Complex on 20 July 2000.

Initial research is currently being analysed and we expect researchers to visit Mossel Bay again in January/February 2001 to continue with their studies.
