The Chavonnes Battery was a VOC fort built to protect Table Bay from sea borne aggressors and covered over in 1860 when the harbour was constructed. Rediscovered and converted into a museum in 2008, the archaeological ruins of the Chavonnes Battery and the history of Cape Town can be explored on the original Cape Town shoreline that has been buried for 300 years.
