Peter Alcock’s KwaZulu-Natal research

Peter Alcock is a science graduate with a Ph.D. who has become interested, in more recent times, in South African indigenous scientific knowledge and history as well as geographic interpretations of selected South African novels. Peter published a book in 2010 on indigenous weather knowledge in this country. A companion volume on South African indigenous celestial knowledge is presently being considered by a local publisher. Peter prefers to avoid the “well-trodden path” in his research, and generally concentrates on the road less travelled.

We will be making Peter’s research papers and other resources available online from time to time.

“Three Tales of Buried Wealth in Natal”
“Airships in South Africa 1927-2013”.
“The Hills Above Pietermaritzburg: An Appreciation”
