North West Province
Some interesting info and places worth visiting while in the area
It was in the North West Province that the famous Taung skull of a young australopithecine child, was disovered in 1924, a skull that provided many answers to some of the puzzling questions around the origins of modern homo sapiens. For some people this alone makes the province a fascinating place to visit and sets the scene for its long and farreaching history.
Many of the towns in the North West Province are steeped in Afrikaner and Voortrekker history. Potchefstroom is a good place to discover a little background of this period of South African history. There are 14 museums and national monuments in town and 60 buildings of architectural and other interest. The Andrew Carnegie Library, City Hall, the Göetz Fleishack Museum and the Main Potchefstroom Museum and Totius House are but a few.
Vredefort Dome, approximately 120km south west of Johannesburg and 30km north east of Potchefstroom, is a representative part of a larger meteorite impact structure, or astrobleme. Dating back 2,023 million years, it is the oldest astrobleme found on earth so far. With a radius of 190km, it is also the largest and the most deeply eroded. Vredefort Dome bears witness to the world’s greatest known single energy release event, which caused devastating global change, including, according to some scientists, major evolutionary changes. It provides critical evidence of the earth’s geological history and is crucial to our understanding of the evolution of the planet. Despite their importance to the planet’s history, geological activity on the earth’s surface has led to the disappearance of evidence from most impact sites and Vredefort is the only example on earth to provide a full geological profile of an astrobleme below the crater floor.
