This sentence is just purely wrong "The first form of life on earth, a bacterial micro fossil Archaeospheroides barbertonis was discovered here and has been identified as being 3.2 billion years old."

I hink it should be deleted (or updated) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.238.7.35 (talk) 13:49, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Barberton Prison[edit]

I believe the Barberton which is the subject of this article was near to a prison which was notorious in the apartheid era. It was apparently nicknamed 'Apartheid's Alcatraz';

It was also mentioned in Rian Malan's book "My Traitor's Heart."
