Abstract:During a short stay in Berlin at the beginning of 2008, I used the opportunity to have a look at the papers of the explorer Gustav Nachtigal, an undertaking I had in mind since writing my thesis on the Fur of Darfur. My main interest was to gain an impression of the material relating to Darfur.
