BICENTENARY COMMEMORATION
William John Burchell
George, 19 September 2014

This is a reminder about the WJ Burchell Centenary Commemoration to be held in George on 19 September 2014.

William John Burchell, famous explorer and naturalist, encamped in the shadows of George Peak during his travels through the Cape Colony in the months of September and October of 1814. Four local historical and heritage societies of the Southern Cape will be hosting a very special event to celebrate the bicentenary of Burchell’s visit. There will be presentations by two erudite speakers, both authorities after many years of enthusiastic research, on the life and works of Burchell.

A memorial, sculptured by Francois de Wet, will be unveiled in the Botanical Garden after the talks.
