The centenary of the Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902) started in October 1999 (although the run-up started about the middle of 1998) and lasted until the middle of June 2002. During that period there were more than a hundred centennial events all over South Africa; and approximately 200 new books on the war were published, as well as more than 100 scientific journal articles and thousands of newspaper articles, plus several new Afrikaans novels and short stories that are set in the Anglo-Boer War.
