Our Incredible Digital Map!

A couple of weeks ago, Olivia and Chao sat down in London to begin mapping significant spots in the Mau Mau Emergency. Chao – who is the founder of an organisation called African Digital Heritage – then went on to create this amazing map. Still a work in progress, it already begins to indicate the scale of detention, works and exile camps that made up the ‘pipeline’ in the 1950s. 

Over the next few weeks, we hope to develop this in a number of ways but, most particularly, with Mau Mau Veterans themselves.
