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 reflect 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.
