The Kasteelberg archaeological complex served as a magnet for pastoralists and the special activities which took place on top of it. There are no other sites which have as much detailed evidence for the sustained presence of early herder groups, the ancestors of the Khoekhoen, along the western and southern Cape coast. The site has been nominated for declaration as a provincial heritage site by Prof Andrew Smith and Dr Lita Webley.
