Hi Pete.
Thanks for posting the Video's much apprciated , he does say he was going to Rorke's Drift , but the video doesnt show Rorkes Drift on his sweep of the area , to me it looked a bit like Khambula with the raised hill and the flat surrounds , I'm only talking of Part 1 of the videos .

Hi Pete,
That countryside shown in the video looks definitely like the Transvaal platteland on the highveld, and the street scenes suggested suburban Middleburg ( 180kms E of Johannesburg) to me. The threatening storm approaching is typical of summer time weather in that region. The presence of a blockhouse in the background of the one clip suggested that too. So, with the empty Mauser cartridges present it would indicate an ABW battleground and relics, somewhere between Middleburg and Bronkhorstspruit. The spent MH heads found were probably fired from a large batch of MH's supplied to the Boers and stamped as such. Neil has knowledge of that deal done.
Now, it is illegal for anyone to fossick around declared " heritage sites" in this country, so perhaps this intrepid fellow need to have his wings clipped.

regards

barry

PS; the Boer descendants talk with awe, still today, of "ou grootbek", old big mouth, the muzzle of the .455 MH.

Hi Pete ,

Videos one looks like the N.Natal , the Dundee area. Jeff could probably pin it down quite closely.
Video two looks like the eastern escarpment of the Transvaal ie east of Middleburg. The magnetic rock was probably magnatite.

Hi All
With the Church in the first Video, which looks very similar to a 1879 ILN print of Luneberg, therefore the first video could be Intombi,

Hi Barry
Yes , it's illegal to search for , and keep any battlefield relics pertaining to the Anglo Zulu War , is it the same for Boer War sites ?.
If so , our intrepid ' Collector ' may find himself in a spot of bother !. Our friend does confuse the issue somewhat , in Part I , or before his video rolls , he says he's going to Rorke's Drift , but as we know from his panoramic view it isnt Rorkes Drift ! . He also says it was on Private Propery I'm fairly certain Rorke's Drift isnt on Private Property .
Rai
I think if it was Intombi surely he would've shown the Monument at the Grave area ? . I'm not sure if there is a monument or such at Khambula ? , judging from what I saw it did appear to be similar terrain to the Khambula position ? .
Cheers 90th

The Church is in Kerk Straat Vryheid And Im pretty sure the first site is Intombe Drift and the second Khambula.

I would go with intombi.

The chap in the video's mention the word museum which museum would that be. And would it be them that allows permission to carryout metal detecting on Battlefield sites?

He went to great lengths to emphasis they were prospecting on private land. Intombi fits that bill but as far as I'm aware Kambula is a declared heritage site and its therefore illegal to dig, mine or use equipment for the purpose of exposing artifacts.

Hi All,
South Africa's  historical  resources were controlled in the past by The SA Monuments Council. That organisation has now morphed into SAHRA, which is the South African Heritage Resource Assoc.
They control all declared battle fields monuments, graveyards, buildings and even ship wrecks older than 60 years within 50kms of the coast. It is strictly illegal in this country for anyone to change, tamper with or remove anything from heritage sites. That prohibition includes "so called" museums.
Private farm land is another matter however.
So, I think the man with that  metal detector needs to be watched.
Contact SAHRA man, in Cape Town is Mr Jonathon Sharfman.

Not sure he would be that stupid to post on YouTube if he didn't have the correct permission to do so.
And if as you say

Hi Pete
I assume this chap doesn't realise it's illegal to search for , and take Relics from ANY battlefield in Sth Africa No . it seems at the very start of the video it may have been Hlobane on the left , but about 4 mins in he shows the battlefield very , very quickly I may add , it looks as though he's at Kambula ! , filming from what I think is Hackett's position ! . Wonder what I'd do if I stumbled across a musket ball or two ? Shocked Shocked . Save it for posterity perhaps , scratch agree

"If you look at the relic hunters film about 4 mins in , he's taken the picture much closer to the rocks I believe.? Look at my photo , and its taken from the zulu position on the dung hill . Overlooking the Hackett position. Here are a couple more the first one is looking from the top of the hill toward the zulu position on the dung hill , Hacketts position is the rocky ledge in the middle or so , notice the water off to the left , there is water in his photo , I firmly believe he's certainly detecting at Khambula !"

Certainly looks like the location.
He must work for an organisation that permits metal dectecting on the various Battlefields. Who owns the land where the Battles took place, is it privately owned?

Hi Ray
I dont think there is an organisation that sanctions , or actually searches , for Relics in Sth Africa , Springy would know best about that , as far as I'm aware , its a crime to remove anything , from any battlefield , from any conflict in Sth Africa . I dont think the Battlefield at Khambula is privately owned ? scratch , It's possible the Cemetery there may well be ? scratch .

Im pretty sure that a portion of the battlefield is privately owned. At the end of this film he thanks the farm owner.
But this character has made a couple of these movies at different sites.

Cheers

We know the rules and reg's. But he don't half make some interesting videos, and he doesn't leave a mess, he quite respectful. But I'm quite enjoying seeing all the MH bullets and various other bits.

Cant help feeling that its so wrong! and what does 
he do with the ' finds '. yes he makes it clear its
on private land, but its protected..men fought and
died there..seems a bit like grave robbing to me.

Yet it okay, for archeologists to dig and metal detect at Isandlwana in the name of a documentary.

In the event that, that remark was addressed anywhere near,
to, or at me.. i feel even more strongly that Isandhlwana 
should have remained untouched after the final burials..
its a mass grave site and should remain inviolate!. you do
understand that i had no responsibility for that documentary.. Very Happy

Wonder what happened to the finds, made during the making of the documentary. ?

I'm all for finding relics, as long as they are used for educational purposes, museums, Schools ect.
Can't see the point of letting history rot away when it can teach so much.

Grave robbing different subject!

Did he not say in one of the videos that he had permission from a museum or worked for a museum?
I'm not sure he would be stupid enough to post theses videos on a public domain (YouTube) if he hadn't gone about things the right way. He's a South Africa, so no doub't knows the law regarding Battlefields and Metal Detecting. And he would also be aware that someone would be able to identify the locations he detects on. 90th proving the point with his photographs.
