Hi guys

I am in the process of creating a web sight centered on Zululand I have a collection of panoramas which will be the center piece of this web sight, most of it will cover the battle sights of Zululand I am hoping to have this online by the end of the year.  As I am going through the eyewitness testimony's  it gives locations of certain features which I am wanting to confirm with maps which were drawn up as close to 1879 as possible.  As an example Uguku mentions a Kraal belonging to Baza which gives the location from were the artillary started firing which can be confirmed on Lieut Mainwaring map indicated by I.  Uguku also mentions a kraal belonging to  Nyenzani which was located behind Isandlwana of which the Nokenke regiment was moving to its not on the Mainwaring map but is there other maps that shows kraals located behind Isandlwana.  John Young has been helping me a lot but I thought it was best if I can remove some of the pressure and spread it around this is going to be a massive project I will be starting with about 50 panoramas  but that might only cover 10% of the entire web sight its going to take many more trips to these sights to cover all the places,  and as it is going to cost me thousands of dollars and hours to set up I will need to charge a small annual fee just to cover some of the costs, but the first month will be free so there is no obligation to pay if any one is not happy with it.  

This web sight will be great for all those who are interested in Zulu history but can not go and climb all these mountains and witness these magnificent views,  the best way to view these panoramas will be on a large screen which will be possible to view on your smart TV or if you dont have one you can connect your computer to the TV using a HDMI cable I have tested this from home and the results are great.  For all those who can contribute with Maps or any other images your name will be mentioned beside your images and I am prepared to give a discount for those who can help out,  nothing like this has been done before so if we who can all contribute we will be promoting our passion to those who may be interested.

So to start things of if there is a map of any kraals mark behind Isandlwana if you can post them or send me a private message I will be grateful.  Also I need a map with the location from where the guns finally fell in the hands of the Zulu and I remember not long ago seeing a map  from were the left horn  entered the camp from Durnfords donga.  If there is other things you may want to help with, you can send me a private message.  I will be posting more requests in the near future

Thanks and lets make this web sight something special.

I wish you well with your project which sounds like quite an undertaking. There are relatively few maps of Isandhlwana at a sufficiently large scale to show the kind of features you're after. The obvious ones are those included in the Narrative - the Military Survey of the Battlefield of Isandhlwana by Anstey shows kraals. More generally, a selected bibliography of Natal Maps by Merrett was published in 1979 by JK Hall and Co. in Boston USA. It lists 15 maps of Isandhlwana ranging in date from 1879 to 1966.

I havent seen this map for a good many years but seem to recall there are cairns located on it. Possibly somebody on the forum can assist.

This looks like something similar, but an earlier date?

Hi Steve
Thats the old Provincial Road map exploring the new access road. The cairn map is similar as you pointed out, with all the cairns numbered.
Ive checked with the PMB archives and cant locate it there so it will probably be in Durban somewhere.
Still searching.

If you can give me a landmark of the Mainwaring map, I can have a look at the map my cousin drew, in 1878, which lists many of the kraals. Kris

I have a Question as I am doing some research on the first sighting of the Zulu by trooper Barker and Whitelaw both being at different locations on Pickett duty where these Zulu's both these troopers saw were they also seen by the pickets on Mikwene and is there any documentation to confirm this I have my personnel belief but i need to look at other possibilities

All your opinions will be welcomed

Aussie
Look back on the forum. Ian Knight once answered questions from forum members, one of those was on the piquets.
Cheers
