Modder River Project

15ErfkroonSeds_editThe Modder River Paleontological & Archaeological Project is a long-term research project investigating the geological, paleoenvironmental, paleontological and archaeological records in the Modder River Basin’s Quaternary deposits. This research, a collaboration between Dr. James Brink (National Museum) and Dr. Britt Bousman, focuses on the alluvial terraces at the site of Erfkroon and spring mound deposits at Baden-Baden. Seven field seasons uncovered a wealth of information on the Pleistocene occupants, and produced 2 MA theses and another in progress.
