Sarah Bartman's Grave
Sarah Bartman’s grave, a National Heritage Site, houses the remains of the Khoi-san woman who was laid to rest upon a hill outside the town after spending a tragic and lonely life as an object of display in Europe during the early years of 1800. She was exhibited as the Hottentot Venus in both London and Paris. After she died at the age of 25, her remains became property of Musèe de I’Homme in Paris and in February 2002, precisely 213 years after her birth, Sarah Bartman finally returned home to the country of her birth.
