Abstract

Ten of the more common seeds and associated plant parts identified in the second-millennium AD layers at Sibudu shelter are illustrated and described. We deal with fresh as well as archaeological examples, and the descriptions focus on diagnostic features that help classify the archaeological specimens. The illustrations and accompanying text are intended to characterize the Sibudu assemblage and to contribute further towards the establishment of identification literature that can be used by archaeobotanists.
