wow....I don't know!!!
I found that the big Camel Thorn Tree was used by the Germans as a look-out post. They nailed horseshoes to the tree to serve as a ladder. The tree was burnt down in a large veldfire in 1976.

I'd hazard a guess at "Der Ausguckbaum" which, correct if I'm wrong, translates as "look-out tree". Completely made up on the spot, but none of my books mention it! Fantastic Q!

Johannes Le Riche and Gert Jannewarie both died of the same causes in 1934, something that is common in KTP. What was it?

:lol: Meerkitty, close enough. :clap: :clap:

The following three days were spent digging, Farini felt that the discoveries they made amply repaid their toil. On digging they came to a pavement about twenty feet wide, made of large stones, the outer ones were long and lay at right angles to the inner ones.

The pavement was intersected by another similar one at right angles, seeming to form a cross, in the middle there seemed to be the remnants of earlier may have been an altar, column or some type of monument, the base quite distinct, composed of loose pieces of fluted masonry.

Having searched for hieroglyphics or inscriptions and not finding any, Lulu made a few sketches and took some photographs, Farini decided that he would leave it to those more knowledgeable than himself to judge who may have occupied and when, the place.
