Natal Native Contingent (NCC) armed with assegais

Photograph of members of the Natal Native Contingent (NCC) armed with assegais (short spears) and shields, 1879 (c). The NNC was formed in 1878 to bolster the defences of the British colony of Natal. Most recruits came from the Basuto and Mponso tribes. NNC troops wore their traditional tribal apparel with a red cloth bandanna around their foreheads, the only item to distinguish them from Zulu warriors who were traditional enemies of the Basuto and Mponso. Natal?s white population had long feared that arming the black population would constitute a security risk, and as a result only a small percentage of NNC soldiers were issued with guns. These were obsolete muzzle-loading muskets rather than modern rifles. Soldiers issued with firearms were only given four rounds of ammunition at any one time. Most NNC soldiers fought with traditional African weapons during the Anglo-Zulu War (1879). From album of 70 photographs, associated with Zulu War (1879). Associated with Col Hume, 94th Regiment of Foot. Date: 1879

Map of Europe, 1700

17th century map of Europe. Published in 1700, this map by the Dutch cartographer Frederick de Witt (1630-1706) shows the latest knowledge of the geography of Europe. The mapping has improved greatly on earlier maps, though there are still errors and distortions of scale. The inscriptions are in Latin. The title banner at upper left is being carried by cherubs, and below that is a depiction of the mythological tale of Europa, carried away by Zeus who took the form of a white bull. The continent of Europe is named after Europa
