Site Description


On the same contour and approximately 150m south-west of Die sieben Tafeln, also sandwiched between the riverbed and valley sides is a large, dark upright boulder against which another leans on its lower part. The upright boulder faces onto the valley and the hiking trail passes within 15m of this site.

Associated Archaeology


There are sparsely scattered hornfels and quartzite flakes on the surface but seems not to have been a living site and perhaps more of a ‘marker’ site, highlighting or nuancing a route.

Description of Die Sieben Tafeln Outlier site’s rock art


There is a 1.9m x 2.53m image cluster that consists of 2 giraffe in a fine and partial pecked infill with little weathering and relatively fresh-looking. There is a possible third and less fine giraffe. Two other giraffe and three very rudimentary animals. One partial pecked infill rhino engraving. There appear to be two episodes of engraving – one older and finer and another more recent and less fine attempt for the small, jackal-like animals.
 
Threat(s) to site: Condition of imagery is good and seems more recent than most of the imagery at the Die sieben Tafeln.
