This guide to Sterkfontein is the second in a series of short books on South Africa's World Heritage Sites. Written by specialists and generously illustrated, the series aims to provide accurate and accessible introductions to the sites, and to make the visit more meaningful and enjoyable for uninformed visitors. Mapungubwe was published in 2005. Sterkfontein provides an easy-to-read overview of the geological and fossil history of the Sterkfontein Valley. The remarkable record contained in the Sterkfontein Caves, comprising thousands of animal, plant and hominid fossils, is simply presented and current debates are explained. The use of visual markers from Sterkfontein enables visitors to identify essential features and formations.
