Odd Victorian Factoid #15
Odd Victorian Factoid#15: When the explorer Livingstone died in Zambia his heart was buried under a Mvula tree (a custom of the tribe he was living with). His body was carried a thousand miles by his faithful companions, Chuma and Susi, and was returned to London to be buried in Westminster Abbey.
