On the site was a huge British camp that housed nearly 16 000 British troops at the beginning of the Anglo-Boer War, a concentration camp (with cemetery), hospitals, forts, cannon positions, a block of flats and many more.
During a guided tour of the site, thousands of objects can be seen. At the concentration camp, signs of tent floors, rusted pots, wire baskets, children’s toys, more cans, and many more items were virtually undisturbed in the field.
Other interesting attractions include the concentration camp cemetery with paths and graves, as well as a restored log house.
