Event Details

A talk by Rob Caskie, Storyteller Extraordinaire

A romp through the last 200 years
South Africa is a young country with a fascinating and complex history.  This story deals with early inhabitants and the arrival of the Nguni people. One of them became the military genius Shaka, with major implications.  Religious persecution and poor standards of living result in a miscellany of Europeans arriving in the Cape after 1652. Notwithstanding the effects of Volcano Tambora in Indonesia and resultant crop failures. British rule, taxation and slavery eventually leads to the Great Trek.  Along with the discovery of diamonds and gold, it creates a kaleidoscope of characters and intrigue worth sharing.
