A report on a cultural heritage impact assessment on the remainder of holding 40 of Union settlement, Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality, Gauteng
Archaetnos cc was requested by K2M Technologies to conduct a cultural heritage impact assessment on the remainder of Holding 40 of Union Settlement, Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality, Gauteng. The development of the so-called Wadeville Extension Industrial Township is being proposed.
The fieldwork undertaken revealed three (3) sites, including a graveyard, of some cultural heritage significance on the property. These sites and the graves, totaling nearly 80 mostly unknown burials, will be directly impacted upon by the development, and mitigation measures will have to be implemented. Once these have been implemented the proposed development can continue.
