At two o'clock in the morning on 19th July 2004, 36 Young Explorers, with nine Leaders arrived at their camp site in the shadow of Longido some one hundred kilometres to the east of Ol Doinyo Lengai.
These Young Explorers were a BES expedition who would walk across the savannah on the floor of the Rift Valley to Ol Doinyo Lengai then climb its steep flanks before trekking across the Crater Highlands to mankind's birthplace at Oldupai Gorge on the edge of the Serengeti plains.
This was a five week BES expedition to the Gregory Rift in northern Tanzania. On returning from Tanzania a 'blog' site was set up by Hugh Anderson to make the 'science' carried during the expedition available to anyone interested in the material, and to provide a site where members of the expedition could tell their story. This 'blog' was no longer evolving so this new site has been created by Hugh Anderson to replace it.
One evolution of the site is to include links and information on projects in the area visited by the Young Explorers in 2004 in Northern Tanzania around the Arusha area. These are projects local to the area, which are helping the people in the region to find their way out of poverty as epitomised by the School of St Jude's motto "Fighting Poverty Through Education". The projects are always looking for Volunteers and Sponsors to progress their work and you can find more information by visiting my Tanzania page.
This site also contains a section on Photographic Intersection, the low cost method of using photographs to accurately measure and record points in three dimensions.
The site has continued to grow with information added about the Ancient Technology Centre in Cranborne, Dorset, and The Church of St Mary in Easton Neston, Northamptonshire.
There is no connection between BSES expedition to Tanzania in 2004, The Church of St Mary in Easton Neston and the Ancient Technology Centre in Cranborne other than they all involve me and share the same site as the material posted here is generated by me.
This site contains photographs, many taken during the expedition. These images have been kept to a low resolution so as to be small in size for speed of loading over the Internet. If you wish to use these low resolution images directly from this site you are free to do so provided copyright is acknowledged to Hugh Anderson and the site address, www.Hugh360.co.uk, quoted as the source of the images.
These images are available at much higher resolution than as displayed on this site.
Please provide as much information as possible about the intended use of such images as I will probably be willing to provide them at no cost if the use suggests this is the best way to proceed.
Please respect the information on this site, which is posted in good faith.
