On the day that I visited the archaeological stores of the South African Museum (in March 2011) the entire, vast collection was being readied for relocation to another part of the museum. Packers moved among the shelves, somewhere a radio played. The archaeological stores of the South African Museum have an estimated 10,000 boxes of material, of which around 1,000 are boxes of human remains. Emplaced on their shelf, the dead of Oakhurst Cave now exist in formal relation to the re-named and numbered dead from sites across Southern Africa.
