The Big Hole
150 years ago, the site of the Big Hole was a featureless, flat-topped hill.
When word spread that diamonds had been discovered, thousands of prospectors, armed with nothing more than
picks, shovels and hope, descended on Kimberley and created the largest hand-dug excavation in the world.
