A set of original diary pages by missionary and explorer David Livingstone, recording his experiences in Congo in 1871 during his final African expedition, has been published for the first time. Livingstone scribbled his raw observations–rewritten in the diary he published later–using berry ink on old newspaper. Today the ink is nearly invisible. Researchers coaxed the faded cursive from obscurity using high-tech scans that measured multiple wavelengths of light. In a July entry, the Scottish missionary described a massacre of up to 500 Africans by Muslim slave traders: “It is awful–terrible a dreadful world this–as I write shot after shot falls on the fugitives…Oh let thy kingdom come.” The full text and scans are viewable at livingstone.library.ucla.edu/1871diary.
