Point of Human Origins

DNA Research has shown that All Humans Alive Today descended from a small population that lived 150,000 – 200,000 years ago , and some of these people lived here. The Mossel Bay Archaeology Project is excavating these caves believed to be some 164,000 old. This is one of the earliest evidence for Modern Human Behaviour.

At present the caves are a Provisional Heritage Site an early step in the process of having them proclaimed a World Heritage Site located below Pinnacle Point.
