Kuruman 2018 Fieldschool

A grant of £6000, awarded to Dr Chris Wingfield (University of Cambridge) and Dr Jesmael Mataga (Sol Plaatje University, Kimberley) from the Cambridge-Africa ALBORADA Research Fund will enable the first full season of a collaborative research at Kuruman in July 2018.

Preliminary Fieldwork at Kuruman Moffat Mission

Preliminary fieldwork in 2017, as part of the larger Re-collecting the Missionary Road project was enabled by a grant from the D M McDonald Grants and Award Fund. The site was visited between 8th and 12th of April by Chris Wingfield and Mark McGranaghan

Metal on the Missionary Road

This project received preliminary funding in the form of a Cambridge Humanities Research Grant for £18,521. This made it possible for Dr Mark McGranaghan to be employed for six months from February to July 2017 to compile eyewitness accounts and visual evidence in a project database and to begin to explore relevant archival sources.

Re-collecting the Missionary Road

The intention of this project is to re-collect and re-assemble a wide range of artefacts associated with the missionary road. In the longer term, the project will result in a major exhibition at the Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology, scheduled for 2024.
