Fish Hoek

 

a suburb of Cape Town, in the Republic of South Africa, where in 1927 a human skeleton and implements from the Upper Paleolithic period were found in Skildergat Cave. The man from Fish Hoek was anthropologically similar to the Bushmen but larger than their contemporary representatives, with a body length of 158 cm. The skeleton dates approximately from 14,000 B.C. or 13,000 B.C.
