      The history of external colonisation of Africa can be divided into two stages: Classical antiquity and European colonialism. In popular parlance, discussions of colonialism in Africa usually focus on the European conquests that resulted in the scramble for Africa after the Berlin Conference in the 19th century.   The British South Africa Company's administration of what became Rhodesia was chartered in by Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom, and began with the Pioneer Column's march north-east to Mashonaland and conquered it without any resistance in Empowered by its charter to acquire, govern and develop the area north of the Transvaal in southern Africa, the Company, .

    The acquisition of the interior of Nigeria, however, was accomplished largely by Sir George Goldie, founder of the Royal Niger Company, who by had eliminated commercial competition on the Niger and, by claiming treaties with responsible African authorities, had secured recognition of British influence over the Niger Basin by the European. He set the British Policy in South Africa. He also founded diamond and gold companies that had made him a fortune. He gained control of a territory north of the Transvaal, which he name Rhodesia after himself. A great champion of British expansion and his goal was to create a series of British colonies.

      He found Livingstone in (picture 1). After being feted in Europe for his accomplishments, Stanley returned to Africa with a commission from King Leopold of Belgium to map the lakes and rivers of central Africa and claim additional territory for Leopold’s African colonization project.   Subsequently, the Afrikaner republics were incorporated into the British Empire after their defeat in the Second South African War (). However, the British and the Afrikaners ruled together beginning in under the Union of South Africa, which became a republic in after a whites-only referendum.

In the British founded the colony of Bathurst at the mouth of the Gambia River. Both colonies served as bases for the British effort to block the slave trade along the coast. Later in the century British rule spread to the interior of Sierra Leone and the Gambia.

Both interiors became protectorates governed through indigenous rulers. Rhodes hoped to find in south-central Africa a “second Rand” to outflank the South African Republic. In his agents secured exclusive mining rights from Lobengula for Rhodes’s British South Africa Company (BSAC), which was granted a royal charter by the British government to exploit and extend administrative control over a vast area of south-central and Southern Africa.

The Great Trek (Afrikaans: Die Groot Trek; Dutch: De Grote Trek), starting in in southern Africa, was a mass migration of Dutch-speaking inhabitants of the British-run Cape Colony, who left the Cape and travelled eastward by wagon train, into the interior of the continent, in order to live beyond the reach of the British colonial administration.

InCecil Rhodes, spearheading British commercial and political interests in Central Africa, obtained a mineral rights concessions from local the same year, Northern and Southern Rhodesia, now Zambia and Zimbabwe, were proclaimed a British sphere of the beginning the territory was administered by Rhodes' British South Africa Company (BSAC), which showed little.

The British also sucked further into the Yoruba and Asante wars and ended up extending British control yet further into the interior of West Africa. Anti-slaving imperatives also brought new obligations along the great lakes of the African Eastern interior particularly around Nyasaland thanks to intensive lobbying from missionaries in the area.

Introduction. The French presence in Africa dates to the 17th century, but the main period of colonial expansion came in the 19th century with the invasion of Ottoman Algiers inconquests in West and Equatorial Africa during the so-called scramble for Africa and the establishment of protectorates in Tunisia and Morocco in the decades before the First World War.

Two of the most important figures in British colonization of Africa were David Livingstone, who advocated the three Cs (i.e., commerce, Christianity, and civilization), and Cecil Rhodes, a British. The establishment of the British Empire in the 18th century laid the foundation for modern India’s contact with the West.

Westernization paved the way for a radical change of artistic taste, and a style emerged that represented the adjustment of traditional artists to new fashions and demands. British colonial rule had a great impact on.

Initially British control was aimed to protect the trade route to the East, however, the British soon realised the potential to develop the Cape for their own needs.

Bechuanaland was one of the last British colonies to establish a LEGCO. Originally, the British said it was because they were already satisfied with the advisory councils but like most things in southern Africa, the British didn't want to offend South Africa.

The LEGCO replaced the advisory councils and was later replaced by the House of Chiefs. In South Africa, the original Dutch-speaking settlers (the Boer) have founded homelands in the Transvaal and the Orange Free State, away from the British-controlled Cape; however, the discovery of diamonds in the interior () starts a rush of British settlers into the area and increases tensions between the two European communities.

This article is excerpted from the book, 'A History of the British Nation', by AD Innes, published in by TC & EC Jack, London.I picked up this delightful tome at a second-hand bookstore in Calgary, Canada, some years ago.
