Wonderwerk Cave, Northern Cape Province (South Africa) is one of few sites in the subcontinent where fossil pollen has been preserved in Holocene cave floor deposits. With the exception of biogenic deposits and stalagmite layers near the cave opening, older material has yielded no pollen. Pollen recorded in previous and new samples from late Pleistocene-Holocene deposits in Excavation 1 at the cave are combined in a calibrated age model based on a selection of published radiocarbon dates.
