Various postulates concerning the origin and purpose of the corbelled structures in the vicinity of the Assegaaibos River on the farms Farmerfield, Glenfield and Springfield, Eastern Cape Province (previously Albany District) have been formulated since their discovery in 1962. For the largest of these structures on the farm Glenfield, each of these interpretations is elaborated upon, the traditions of each case investigated and the merits and demerits of each postulate presented.

From an article The corbelled stone structures of Glenfield Farm, Salem - some interpretations revisited by Roger C FISHER and Nicholas J CLARKE. To read the full article click here.
