A report on a cultural heritage impact assessment on portion 14 of the farm Sterkfontein 318 KT,
Burgersfort/Steelpoort area, Limpopo


Archaetnos cc was requested by Plan-2-Survey Africa Town and Regional Planners to conduct a Cultural Heritage Impact Assessment on Portion 14 of the farm Sterkfontein 318 KT for a proposed residential and business development.

The fieldwork undertaken revealed some features of very low archaeological and cultural heritage significance on the property, but although these will be impacted on by the proposed development, the development can continue. The documentation undertaken during the survey is deemed as sufficient enough mitigation.

Therefore, the development on portion 14 of the farm Sterkfontein 318 KT can continue. However, the subterranean presence of any archaeological and/or historical objects, features or sites should always be taken into consideration. Should any of these be uncovered in the course of the development, professional archaeologists must be called in to investigate before development can progress.
