Sensemaking in Stellenbosch

Public history – particularly in the form of heritage – is open and free ranging, there for everybody to observe. This opens up an avenue for descriptions of heritage to abound – as they tend to do in Stellenbosch – without interrogating the underlying dynamics of heritage production. The aim of this chapter is to outline some of the more salient features of this production process and take a tentative look into the future of heritage in the town.
