At two o’clock in the morning on 19th July 2004, 36 Young Explorers, with nine Leaders arrived at their camp site in the shadow of Longido some one hundred kilometres to the east of Ol Doinyo Lengai in northern Tanzania.
These Young Explorers were a British Exploring Society (BES)expedition who would walk across the savannah on the floor of the Rift Valley to Ol Doinyo Lengai then climb its steep flanks before trekking across the Crater Highlands to mankind’s birthplace at Oldupai Gorge on the edge of the Serengeti plains.
This was a five week British Exploring Society (BES) expedition to the Gregory Rift in northern Tanzania. On returning from Tanzania a ‘blog’ site was set up by Hugh Anderson to make the ‘science’ carried during the expedition available to anyone interested in the material, and to provide a site where members of the expedition could tell their story. The ‘blog’ was no longer evolving so hugh360.co.uk was created by Hugh Anderson to replace it and include the science reports and a selection of photographs from the British Exploring Society (BES) expedition.
This site continues to evolve and includes photographs of various locations around the globe and links to related sites. The photography extends to panoramic photography, which includes information on creating your own panoramas and links to panorama related topics, hardware and software.
Panoramic Photography is closely related to the topics of Measurements from 360° (Spherical) Panoramas and Photographic Intersection, the low cost methods of using photographs to accurately measure and record points in three dimensions, and these are now included on this site.
The site has continued to grow with information added about the Ancient Technology Centre in Cranborne, Dorset, and the Church of St Mary in Easton Neston, Northamptonshire, and panoramas related to these sites and a number of other Churches including the rock hewn Churches of Lalibela in Ethiopia.
