Abstract

In hierdie studie word die omstrede oorsprong van die vorm en konstruksie van die Suid-Afrikaanse bootvormige hartbees- of dakhuis van nader beskou. Teorieë en standpunte in die kultuurgeskiedskrywing word krities beskou en beredeneer, waarna primêre en sekondêre bronne ontleed word, na aanleiding waarvan twee tipes Europese bootvormige dakraamkonstruksies geïdentifiseer word, waarvan een identies aan die van die Suid-Afrikaanse bootvormige hartbees- of dakhuis is.


In this study the controversial origin of the form and construction of the South African boat-shaped or roof-dwelling is closely examined. Theories and points of views in cultural-historical writings are critically examined and discussed. Following this, an analysis of primary and secondary sources then leads to the identification of two types of European boat-shaped roof-frame constructions, one of which is identical to the South African boat-shaped or roofdwelling.
