Vol 10 No 6 – December incorporating Museum Review Masonry Blockhouses of the South African War, by Richard Tomlinson In , the author began his spare-time field study and research into the blockhouses and other fortifications erected by the British forces in South Africa during the South African War There being very little information available on the subject at that time, the process has been an ongoing and absorbing passion ever since and there is still much to be learned. However, with the centenary of the war only a couple of years away, he considers that the time has come to record some of his findings and conclusions, to stimulate the interest of all who are involved in the recording and preservation of these structures and to inform others who enjoy military history and old buildings. The author emphasises from the outset that the following observations are of an interim nature and may be amended as further information comes to light and more field studies are undertaken, but he believes that this is a starting point. The term is encountered again in South Africa in the early nineteenth century when it was used to describe three masonry towers built by the British on the slopes of Table Mountain to protect Cape Town and two prefabricated wooden towers which were shipped to Algoa Bay to safeguard a landing place of what later became known as Port Elizabeth. For the purposes of this article, a ‘masonry blockhouse’ is defined as a structure of mortared stonework or concrete, one to three storeys in height, with a roof of timber and corrugated iron or concrete, with rifle ports, windows and doors protected by loopholed steel plates and with or without steel machicouli galleries. The drystone bases of corrugated iron blockhouses and the irregularly shaped drystone forts constructed by infantry regiments, although an interesting study in themselves, do not fall within the scope of this article.

What is a World Heritage Site? A World Heritage Site is an area that is deemed to have exceptional universal value. It is protected and preserved against threats of changing social and economic conditions and natural decay. Once a site has been selected, it is included on the World Heritage site list and is protected for future generations against threats of damage caused by natural and mechanical conditions.
Benefits of Being a World Heritage Site The site receives national and international recognition, and is likely to attract tourists to the area. The listed site also has an opportunity of receiving financial assistance from the World Heritage Fund to manage training and technical programmes in the preservation of the area. Other benefits include emergency assistance from the fund, to enable urgent action to repair damage caused by adverse human activity or natural disasters.
The most important benefit is that World Heritage Sites are preserved for future generations. What the Scientists Have Found Aside from the rich anthropological value of the area, the Cradle of Humankind also boasts game reserves, a Show cave which dates back 2 million years ago, and the first Gold mine on the Witwatersrand, conference centres and upmarket lodges. The area is also a rich haven for those with a passion for trout fishing and has restaurants of international standards.

Names[ edit ] In the s, the names “Empire”, “Westminster”, and “Rising Star” were used interchangeably. This block is the so-called Dragon’s Back, so named because the climbing route appears to progress from the tail to the head along the spiked spine of a mythical beast. More than 1, fossil elements were recovered and catalogued in November ,  representing at least a dozen individuals. The bones of both old and young individuals, as well as infants, were found. Hawks , from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who is a member of the team, has stated that the scientific facts are that all the bones recovered are hominin, except for those of one owl; there are no signs of predation, and there is no predator that accumulates only hominins this way; the bones did not accumulate there all at once.

Subsequent granitoid plutonism was episodic and coincided with hiatuses in sediment deposition, but continued throughout the evolution of the basin. Many of the provenance granitoids are characterized by hydrothermal alteration, are geochemically anomalous with respect to Au and U, and may represent viable source rocks for palaeoplacer mineralization. Tectonically, the basin evolved in response to processes occurring within a Wilson cycle, associated with the encroachment and ultimate collision of the Zimbabwe and Kaapvaal cratons.
Metamorphism of the Witwatersrand Basin occurred at ca. Mineralization is concentrated in the conglomerates of the Central Rand Group and is represented by a complex paragenetic sequence initiated by early accumulation of detrital heavy minerals. This was followed by three stages of remobilization caused by metamorphic fluid circulation. An early event of authigenic pyrite formation at Ma was followed at Ma by maturation of organic material, fluxing of hydrocarbon bearing fluids through the basin and the radiolytic fixation of bitumen around detrital uraninite.
This was followed at around Ma by peak metamorphism which resulted in the widespread redistribution of gold and the formation of a variety of secondary sulphides.
