Ng'ambo atlas : historic urban landscape of Zanzibar Town's 'other side' by Zanzibar( )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ng'ambo is the lesser known 'other side' of Zanzibar Town. During the British Protectorate the area was designated as the 'Native Quarters', today it is set to become the new city centre of Zanzibar's capital. Local and international perceptions of the cultural and historical importance of Ng'ambo have for a long time remained overshadowed by the social and cultural divisions created during colonial times. One thing is certain: despite its limited international fame and lack of recognition of its importance, Ng'ambo has played and continues to play a vital role in shaping the urban environment of Zanzibar Town. This atlas presents over hundred years of Ng'ambo's history and urban development through maps, plans, surveys and images, and provides insights into its present-day cultural landscape through subjects such as architecture, toponymy, cultural activities, public recreation, places for social interaction, handcrafts and urban heritage. Ng'ambo Atlas : historic urban landscape of Zanzibar Town's 'other side' documents the material collected through the heritage-based urban regeneration project Ng'ambo Tuitakayo! carried out by the Government of Zanzibar in collaboration with African Architecture Matters and City of Amsterdam and under the auspices of UNESCO."--Back cover

Tikal, a handbook of the ancient Maya ruins : with a guide map by William R Coe( Book )

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Twenty-five hundred or more years ago a group of peoples settled on and about a barely seen hill in the lowland jungles of northern Guatemala. Their descendants were soon to create by almost unfathomable means one of the most astonishing civilizations the world has ever seen. We now know that hill and the surrounding area as Tikal. Tikal, a traditional name whose meaning is unknown to us, became the prime city of the Maya people populating the Peninsula of Yucatán. Today, in what is geographically the southern part of this peninsula, the pre-eminence of Tikal is still asserted by the ruined roof combs of huge white temples rising above an undulating rain forest that ends only at the distant Caribbean sea."-- Introduction
