Dr Jonah Choiniere will present a talk on “New insights into southern African archosaurs from five years of manual and digital fieldwork” on Thursday 22nd June at 1pm. All are welcome.

For the last five years, Jonah Choiniere of Wits University has been working in the Elliot Formation and its equivalents in southern Africa, searching for new fossils. He has also been CT-scanning old fossils in search of new data to help understand the biology of these extinct organisms. In his talk, Jonah will present preliminary results of this work, including the largest dinosaur from the Karoo Basin, a digital look inside a dinosaur embryo, and new information about Zimbabwe’s famous “dinosaur island”.

New Monument - Stanley Hall and Square

The Native Welfare Society built Stanley Hall in 1936. It is named after Sir H.J. Stanley, Governor of Southern Rhodesia.
Its prime function was a reception centre for newly arrived migrants. Later it became the centre of early African trade unionism, politics, and recreation. It is closely associated with early African Nationalists such as Sipambonis Khumalo, Masotsha Ndlovu, Benjamin Burombo, Jason Moyo and many others.

It was also a key social heart of early African Bulawayo. Dance competitions and “Township Jazz” have their roots here. As do many sports, soccer and boxing in particular.

The adjacent open area was gradually developed as an arena for sports, “bioscope” (films) and meetings of various forms. Stanley Square was the start of many mass movements that transformed the City and indeed the Country at large.

Stanley hall is possibly the most important political building in modern Zimbabwe.
