Custodial history

[Source - Chloe Rushovich for FHYA using material provided by Len van Schalkwyk, 2018: The Msunduzi Museum incorporating the Voortrekker Complex has various artefacts collected from around the eMakhosini area during the 20th Century, by Reverend (Ds.) P. P. Stander. Stander was the resident curate of the Dutch Reformed Mission at Dingaanstadt. He was responsible for setting up a small, private museum next to the Mission Station, which he called the NG Sendingkerk Museum. The collection remained on public view until it was reclaimed by Stander due to what he perceived to be inadequate security and curation. Following his death, his family bequeathed the collection to the Msunduzi Museum. The museum's Dingaanstadt records have not been digitally archived, but the eThembeni Cultural Heritage have collated summaries of artefacts and items provenanced to the eMakhosini Valley.]

Scope and content

[Source - Chloe Rushovich for FHYA, 2018, using material provided by eThembeni Cultural Heritage Management: The FHYA appointed eThembeni Cultural Heritage to compile a comprehensive database relating to the uMgungundlovu archaeological site, including collating descriptions of collections in curation; associated and peripheral materials such as museum documentation, accession information, registers, individual items; and historical notes pertaining to the site. eThembeni identified the Ds. Stander collection at the Msunduzi Museum incorporating the Voortrekker Complex as being relevant to this brief, as the collection consists of material collected in the eMakhosini region and the uMgungundlovu archaeological site is situated in this region. The museum agreed to allow the FHYA to put the digital images of 9 objects, as well as their associated metadata which were individually catalogued on a two-sided A4 paper record held by the museum, with artefact and provenance details listed in Afrikaans.]
