'Discovering the significance of Blaauwberg Valley on the cultural heritage of the West Coast', a talk by Marius Breytenbach at Eerste Steen. The Valley area was not just a field hospital set up for the casualties from the Battle of Blaauwberg in 1806, but its importance extends beyond this specific event and includes a longer sequence of colonial and pre-colonial occupation. Marius has researched the Valley outspan for his Masters degree, and has many interesting facts to share.
