The limeworks deposit from this locality has produced one of the two main South African samples of Australopithecus africanus, the gracile species (see Australopithecus). There are no typical stone tools, but many bone and horn fragments are alleged to have been modified as tools, the so-called osteodontokeratic culture. The hominid remains may date from about three million years ago. The nearby Cave of Hearths has Acheulian and later deposits.
