Bartolomeu Dias discovered that he had sailed past the southern-most point of Africa. A strong wind had driven him so far south of Cape Point that he did not see it and had to sail northwards to reach the coast. His first landing place was the bay of St. Blaize, now Mossel Bay. Here he took in fresh water and bartered live-stock from the Khoikhoi. #History #BartolomeuDias #TBT

Evidence at the Pinnacle Point Caves in Mossel Bay shows that ancient people lived here between 170 000 and 40 000 years ago, and that they lived off what the ocean left them on the rocks below the caves.

The Pinnacle Point Caves also contain signs from those times of stone tool-making and the grinding of ochre for body painting.
