Professor Curtis Marean and Dr Hayley Cawthra invite you to take part in a voluntary day-long field trip on Friday the 1st of February, following the proceedings of the 22nd SASQUA conference. This field trip commences with a visit to Pinnacle Point where the archaeological records, anthropological complexities, and geological evolution of the system will be explained and demonstrated. You will spend time at PP13B and PP5-6, with stops on the walk between. We then drive east to to the Klein- and Great Brak River mouths, where modern coastal sedimentary depositional processes mirror ancient evidence for sea-level change, which is preserved in the form of carbonate-cemented aeolianite and beachrock dating back to Marine Isotope 11 and 5e.
