Driekopseiland Petroglyph Site

Driekopseiland is a rock engraving site (petroglyph site) in the bed of the Riet River.

Located close to the town of Plooysburg in the Northern Cape, South Africa, the site has more than 3500 individual engravings, predominantly pecked geometric images.

The engravings occurs on the exposed glaciated basement rock in the bed of the river, which is submerged when the river rises.

It is estimated that the engravings date from two different periods, 1) before about 2500 years ago and 2) after about 1000 years ago.
