Set in Newcastle in KwaZulu Natal is the Fort Amiel Museum. Formerly a fort built in 1876 by the 80th Staffordshire Volunteers and Major Amiel as a lookout post for British soldiers leading up to the Zulu War.

The fort was used as a garrison for the Kings Royal regiment during the Boer War and also served as a hospital, transit camp and depot. In 1979 the fort, surrounding area and graveyard was declared a national monument and they began restoring the site after they found the original plans for the fort in the London Museum during this time.

Fort Amiel is now a historical and cultural museum exhibiting the two Anglo Boer Wars, a reconstruction of the British Army Base and displays a vast collection of items used. This fascinating site is well worth a visit, there is a lot to discover and explore and will amaze both the young and old.
