A report on a cultural heritage impact assessment on the farm Zandfontein 1376, Vaaldam, Free State Province
Archaetnos cc was requested by Plan-Enviro CC to conduct a cultural heritage impact assessment on the farm Zandfontein 1376. The site is located on the banks of the Vaaldam. The development of low-density residential housing is planned on this property.
The fieldwork undertaken revealed a number of sites of cultural significance on the property, namely the remains of low stonewalled Iron Age settlements, as well as the foundations of historical stone built structures and associated features. These sites will be impacted upon by the proposed development. It is recommended that the development can continue as planned, taking into consideration the recommendations put forward at the end of the report.
