Archaeology Department

Most of the items listed below are contained in plastic bags with seals such as are becoming more frequently used (previously we stapled our clear plastic bags). The objects are then placed in a box that once contained Multimedia 2-Channel Speakers (for use with desk-top computers).

The documents are in a self-adhesive envelope (previously one would use those that needed to be licked before sticking). The self-sticking envelopes do not retain their self-adhesiveness for long in Kimberley’s dry heat and so when posting a letter (no longer as common a practice as before e-mail came to dominate our communications!), one often needs to have a pot of glue to hand to make sure the self-sticking part sticks!.

Finally, this short description of the Archaeology Department’s contribution – a copy of which is at the Museum – was typed on a desk-top PC (personal computer) in the Archaeology Department in the Humanities Block, and printed on a printer-photocopier-fax machine upstairs next to the Library.

  • A note on PLACE and TIME – archaeology being a discipline which in part defines the past in relation to these two variables.

  • Artefacts as follows:

  • An artefact concerned with PLACE – one of the early generation Garmin hand-held GPS units.

  • An artefact for measuring in an excavation: a 3 m tape measure.

  • Writing instruments: a nib for use with black Indian Ink to mark stone artefacts (by the early twenty first century these are difficult to find but remain ideal for the job!); a short pencil; a green felt-tipped pen; a Bic ball-point pen.

  • At Peter Beaumont’s suggestion, a lump of specularite – a substance which we understand to have been used both as cosmetic ad in ritual contexts in Stone Age and other precolonial contexts. Its use is described by /Han≠kass’o in the Bleek and Lloyd records. It is found in archaeological contexts dating back to Acheulean times in the Northern Cape.
