Abstract:
Tortoises are common elements in hunter-gatherer and pastoralist diets and play an important role in their material culture in South Africa. At Middle and Late Pleistocene and Holocene localities in the Western Cape, people, scavengers, raptors and natural processes have contributed to assemblages of tortoises at several open-air sites. With the possible exception of Duinefontein 2, human use of tortoises in the earlier occurrences is masked by the effect of bush fires. As documented in a field study on the farm Elandsfontein Wes, bush fires introduce significant amounts of tortoise bone into the taphonomic stream. At Geelbek, the incidence of burnt bones near Later Stone Age fire places implies human activity.
