Maropeng releases online Sterkfontein Exhibition Guide

  • January 28, 2009

Maropeng is pleased to announce the publication of the new Sterkfontein guide on our website.

The Sterkfontein online exhibition guide complements the displays in the visitor centre at the Sterkfontein Caves. The displays here focus on the geology of cave formation and how fossils are preserved and extracted, and on the amazing finds of hominid fossils in the Sterkfontein Caves, the Cradle of Humankind’s most famous fossil site.

The information in the guide is mostly derived from the Sterkfontein Caves exhibition itself and is interesting to read, and scientifically accurate. Maropeng also allows readers to utilise it for educational and individual purposes with credit to Maropeng.

The guide covers many diverse and interesting topics, from the formation of the Earth to the Cradle’s contemporary environment, and everything in between including the discovery of Sterkfontein Caves, extinct animals and human evolution.

Learn more about Homo, Paranthropus and Australopithecus, and Sterkfontein’s famous “Little Foot”.

This guide is in addition to the existing Maropeng exhibition guide which is also available online.
