Mapping The Land God Made In Anger: Conducting A Rapid, But Thorough Survey Of Namibia’s Forbidden Zone (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Elaine Wyatt. John C Pollack.

There are few sites more remote or environments more hostile than the mostly abandoned diamond fields of the southern Namib Desert. This is the Sperrgebiet, declared the Forbidden Zone by the German colonial administration in 1908 and still forbidden to this day. It’s 26,000 km2 of industrial debris and a few sand-drenched settlements. Our goal was to produce a comprehensive map of the town of Pomona, abandoned in 1928, and nearby mining camp Stauch’s Lager in as little time in the field as...


Nineteenth Century Domestic and Industrial Landscapes within Military Installations on the Panhandle of Florida (2018)
