Fact- file on David Livingstone,

Did You know?

David Livingstone, the nineteenth-century explorer, missionary, and antislavery activist, is buried in London’s Westminster Abbey.

But where is his heart?

Answer: Zambia.

Livingstone died in Nov. 1873.

Before shipping his body back to England, his friends attached a note his corpse saying:

“Saying you can have his body, but his heart belongs to Africa”.

The Livingstone memorial in Ilala marks the spot where his heart is buried.
