The typological, affinities and inherent interpretative problems of a stoneworking site situated at the edge of the central Namib Desert are discussed. Evidence for manufacturing techniques was obtained although the resultant artefact assemblage was biased because of the removal of finished pieces. It is hoped that this study will provide a contribution towards the establishment of a chronology for the Pleistocene and Early Holocene times of the central Namib.
