Archaetnos cc was approached by Andre van Zyl Attorneys in Pretoria, to assist in the location, investigation and documentation of cultural (heritage) sites linked to the Litho Ndzundza. These sites, located on a number of farms in the Rust de Winter area, are included in a gazetted land claim case (LCC 116/99) of the Litho Ndzundza.
The preliminary location, investigation and documentation of cultural heritage sites related to this case were conducted successfully, and are contained in a separate report lodged with the client. A number of sites linked to Litho Ndzundza history was visited and recorded. After the preliminary fieldwork Archaetnos was requested to conduct more in depth research into the cultural history and ethnography of the Litho Ndzundza, as well as further archival research. This document reflects the results of this preliminary research.
