Description

David Livingstone was born in 1813. He was a Scottish Presbyterian medical missionary. He was known for his exploration of central Africa. He was the first European to see Queen Victoria Falls and is famous for his meeting with H M Stanley that gave rise to the phrase "Dr Livingstone I presume." As one of the most popular heroes in Victorian England, Livingstone "rags to riches" story," his daring exploration, and his strong anti-slavery stance made him the source of legend. His fame as an explorer helped drive the obsession to find the source of the Nile. His disappearance and death in Africa led to the founding of several African Christian missions.
