The European history of South Africa began with the 1652 arrival of a small Dutch flotilla in Table Bay, at the southern extremity of the African continent, which made landfall with a view to establishing a victualing station to service passing Dutch East India Company Vereenigde Oost Indische Compagnie ships The Dutch at that point largely dominated the East Indian Trade, and it was their establishment of the settlement of Kaapstad, or Cape Town, that set in motion the lengthy and often turbulent history of South Africa. For over a century, the Cape remained a Dutch East India Company settlement, and in the interests of limiting expenses, strict parameters were established to avoid the development of a colony As religious intolerance in Europe drove a steady trickle of outward emigration, however, Dutch settlers began to informally expand beyond the Cape, settling the sparsely inhabited hinterland to the north and east of Cape Town In doing so, they fell increasingly outside the administrative scope of the Company, and they developed an individualistic worldview, characterized by self dependence and self reliance They were also bonded as a society by a rigorous and literal interpretation of the Old Testament In their wake, towards the end of the 17th century, followed a wave of French Huguenot immigrants, fleeing a renewal of anti Protestantism in Europe They were integrated over the succeeding generations, creating a hybridized language and culture that emerged in due course as the Cape Dutch, The Afrikaner or the Boer. The Napoleonic Wars radically altered the old, established European power dynamics, and in 1795, the British, now emerging as the globe s naval superpower, assumed control of the Cape as part of the spoils of war In doing so, they recognized the enormous strategic value of the Cape as global shipping routes were developing and expanding Possession passed back and forth once or twice, but or less from that point onwards, the British established their presence at the Cape, which they held until the unification of South Africa in 1910.
