Archaeological sites

Numerous stone tool sites exist in the greater Seven Dams area. These range in age from Middle to Late Stone Age, and show the occupation, use and habitation by our ancestors over a period of human history ranging from 500 to 250 000 years and the present day.

Additionally, the whole area is rich in artefacts and constructions from the Anglo Boer war. There are also two sites containing graves. One site in Lilyvale has close to 195 graves (abridged report Appendix 3) and the other site marked on the municipal map contains several graves and is in the Seven Dams Conservancy.
