        The Cape of Good Hope is not only one of the most well-known places to visit in South Africa but has also been a place of major importance over the last centuries, going back to the time when there were no European settlers on the Cape, yet. It was feared by many navigators because the Cape of Good Hope is a highly dangerous territory as many. Excavations at Vergelegen, a large estate in the Western Cape of South Africa that dates to the earliest years of the 18th century, have allowed archaeologists to address a number of questions about the nature of colonial settlement in this former Dutch colony. Primary among these were questions about slavery and about the interrelationships between slaves, colonists, and the indigenous.
