Cathelijne and Edward Eastwood
Ed Eastwood was born on the 9th of July of 1946 in Elim in Limpopo, South Africa.
He graduated with a BSc in Zoology from the University of the Witwatersrand in 1969. He worked for seven years at the South African Institute for Medical Research and the South African Museum conducting research on arachnids.
After travelling widely in India and Europe, he worked variously as truck driver and barman, eventually settling in Ireland where he became a horticulturist. Back in South Africa, he had a garden landscaping business and later became parks manager and horticulturist in his hometown in Limpopo province. Since 1991, inspired by David Lewis-Williams' book, Images of Power, he began locating and mapping rock art sites in the Limpopo River Valley. Now director of Palaeo-Art Field Services, an independent rock art recording unit, he and his wife, Cathelijne, conduct surveys and research in northern South Africa.
