Book

Author:Oberholster, JJ
Year:1972
Title:The historical monuments of South Africa
Place:Cape Town
Publisher:Rembrandt Van Rijn Foundation for Culture at the request of the National Monuments Council

THE HISTORICAL MONUMENTS OF SOUTH AFRICA presents a comprehensive and richly illustrated picture of the more than 370 historical monuments throughout the Republic — from the serene and imperturbable Table Mountain itself to the bronze plaque at Punda Milia, which commemorates one of the longest horse-back rides ever undertaken in South Africa. It covers the recent Tulbagh restoration work in Onderstraat, as well as President Kruger's house on the farm, Boekenhout-fontein, in the foothills of the Magaliesberg. It encompasses the Fingo Milkwood Tree at Peddie and the graves of the Zulu Kings in the Emakhosini Valley. It ranges from the glaciated pavements of Nooitgedacht to the Doornlaagte Earlier Stone Age sites. In doing so, the author and his collaborators have produced an invaluable account of the contribution that the Historical Monuments Commission (now the National Monuments Council) has made during the past 46 years to the conservation of our culture and our nature — a colourful kaleidoscope of the history of South Africa integrated with the visible and tangible heritage of all the peoples of our land.
