Rock art is abundant but faded. Excavations are ongoing and are part of a long-term project (Wadley 1991, 1992, 1995; Wadley and Vogel 1991). Thirty-eight square metres were excavated to the classic Wilton level (level Pt, dating between 7630 ± BO BP and 5970 ±70 BP). An additional Bm were excavated by Harper (1994) into the Middle Stone Age (MSA) levels from the exposed sections left after excavations were completed by Malan in the 1940's (Malan Vol13 (2) Aug 1996 1958) and Beaumont in 1962 (Beaumont 1978).
