About us

mapThe Hessequa Society for Archaeology is a free association and non-statutory body that was formed on 1 April 2008 by a group of residents interested in the preservation and promotion of the archaeological heritage of the Hessequa Region.

This heritage includes the ancient fish traps and shell middens along the coast from the Gourits River mouth to the mouth of the Breede River, the rock art sites in the Langeberg mountains, the archaeological treasures of the Blombos cave, the many archaeological artefacts found in the region, many other sites of archaeological and cultural interest, as well as the unique limestone fynbos of the area and specifically in the Hessequa region.

Membership is open to all. Those who share an interest in gaining knowledge of the archaeology of the region and the preservation of this heritage are welcome to join our society.
