Since 2004 the Wonderwerk Cave Research Project, comprising South African researchers and those from overseas, has been actively engaged in archaeological research in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa.  The project is co-directed by Michael Chazan (University of Toronto) and Liora Kolska Horwitz (Hebrew University) with the collaboration of David Morris, Head of Archaeology at the McGregor Museum Kimberley

Concurrently the team is excavating at Wonderwerk Cave and on the sites of the Kathu Complex. This mosaic set of sites, is enabling us to learn about the peoples who inhabited the Northern Cape – from the distant past until recent times, their changing lifestyles and the environments in which they lived.
