oa South African Journal of Cultural History - Die Anglo-boereoorlog (1899-1902) en kultuurhistoriese museums in Suid-Afrika: bronneverkenning
The purpose of this study, requested by the South African Society for Cultural History, was to draw attention to written and pictorial sources concerning the Anglo Boer War, located in Cultural History Museums in South Africa. Questionnaires were sent to more than eighty Cultural History Museums throughout the country. In spite of a somewhat disappointing response, it was discovered that valuable information about the Anglo Boer War is to be found in unpublished diaries and reminiscences, letters, narratives, and diverse documents such as maps, telegrams, proclamations, permits, notices, testimonials and programmes, and also in contemporary local newspapers, scrap-books from prisoner-of-war camps, songs and poems, rare Africana books, unpublished research projects, contemporary works of art and thousands of photographs. A number of the sources mentioned are investigated more closely.
