Abstract

This paper describes the results of excavation of well deposits from Barrack Street, Cape Town. The sequence starts with an assemblage dated to the late eighteenth century and continues, with a clear stratigraphy, until the late nineteenth century. Artefact assemblages refelect changes from a domestic to a commercial building, and from the period when the Cape was under the control of the Dutch East India Company through the establishment of the Cape as a British colony.
