About this artwork

David Livingstone was one of the great Christian missionaries of the nineteenth century, and fought the slave trade in Africa throughout his life with great dedication. His journey across Africa and his discovery, and naming, of Victoria Falls made him Britain's national hero. Livingstone was born in the Lanarkshire town of Blantyre. This etching shows the building which housed the single room that he was born and grew up in.
