The Heritage Portal is South Africa's leading history and heritage website. Our goal is to get South Africans excited about the past. We publish fascinating articles and book reviews and share notices about what is happening throughout the heritage community. We host The Heritage Directory, a list of individuals, organisations and companies providing products and services to South Africa’s heritage sector. We are also building a database of South Africa's blue plaques. Use the menus above to find your way to the relevant section.
