PostSubject: What did happen to the Zulu Dead at Isandlwana.   What did happen to the Zulu Dead at Isandlwana. EmptyThu Feb 12, 2009 2:47 pm

I was watching a program last night. Some of which was filmed at Isandlwana.
The program was regarding a Zulu Prince who wanted to meet a British Girl.

Anyway the Zulu Prince was making statements regarding the Graves and Monuments stating they were only there to remember the "White Boys"

He asked what about the Zulu’s where are they buried where are their monuments?

Good question.
If so many Zulu died at Isandlwana where were they buried who removed their bodies. If we go by the History books there would have been far to many dead Zulu’s to carry off. There would have been no time.

So what did happen to the Zulu Dead?

“Wet With Yesterday’s Blood” by Ian Knight

"By late afternoon, the great army had begun to retire back towards the Ngwebeni valley, where they had started the day, carrying their loot and their wounded with them. Friends and relatives of the dead dragged many of the corpses into the dongas which flow below the present site of the St. Vincent’s mission, and covered them over. Other corpses were simply left with their shields covering their faces in token burial."

More to the point:...
It would be months before the British returned to bury their dead, covering the bones with piles of stones, the origins of the cairns which are a conspicuous feature of the site today.

Why did it take so long. It may have been possible that a burial party would have found incriminating documents’ that would undermine Chelmsford created cover-up.
