Abstract:The rock engravings of Freiheit Ost (no. 80), Witvlei, Namibia, were recorded during the week of 10-15 April 2000. The objectives of the fieldwork at the farm were to locate the engravings, assess their condition, and record and describe them. The final product of the project would be guidelines for the management, presentation and access of the sites by visitors. The fieldwork also aimed at observing the active and possible causes of decay of the engravings. The work was done under the National Monuments Council Permit number 5/99. This article publishes the preliminary report containing observations made during the fieldwork. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract]
