In 1869, Europe had lost all trace of David Livingstone, the Scottish doctor and missionary. Livingstone’s explorations on the African continent made him one of the most celebrated figures in the scientific world, notably revealing to Europe the existence of the Victoria Falls and mapping out the course of the Zambezi River. The American journalist Henry M Stanley was commissioned to find Livingstone. He undertook a large-scale expedition as far as Lake Tanganyika, with the firm intention of returning to Europe with both Livingstone and a multitude of discoveries.
