The Artefacts website of the World Wide Web makes information of interest about the southern African Built Environment readily accessible and freely available in the public domain. The researches of Joanna Walker - when at the Human Sciences Research Council, thereafter the South African Heritage Resources Agency - form the core information, although here curated as an electronic relational database. This project is pursued independently and without financial assistance as an interactive web-based resource, with Frank Gaylard as webmaster and Roger Fisher as researcher and advisor. The core data is expanded with contemporary information, illustrative material and additional resources which is continuously being maintained, extended, corrected and upgraded to conform to the most recent developments in electronic web-based media platforms. This is an on-going project, with all contributions submitted voluntarily as open-source information. All contributors are acknowledged and all consulted material referenced to source. Copyright vests with the authors of unique material, and we facilitate communication with contributors as requests for permission to use such material arise.
