Hall, M, Brink, Y and Malan, A 1988, 'Onrust 87/1: An Early Colonial Farm Complex in the Western Cape' , The South African Archaeological Bulletin, 43 (148) , pp. 91-99.Full text not available from this repository.
In this paper, we describe an early colonial farm complex near Stellenbosch. We show how the single, eighteenth century farmhouse, with roots in the European vernacular, was transformed into a werf in the Cape manorial style, probably when its owner achieved local prominence as a wine farmer in the early nineteenth century. We argue that detailed studies such as this contribute to a revision of the nature of colonialism in southern Africa.
