Film Lesson: "Mountains of the Moon"

In the film Mountains of the Moon the Europeans faced many hardships. Hostile tribes, harsh weather conditions, famine, deserters and a over all unfamiliar sense of their surroundings. Its sort of weird that the 3rd largest lake in the world which resides in Africa is named after a English Queen because it was named by the people who conquered the land rather then by the people who originally lived there. Even though the Europeans had many disadvantages they had great advantages in the Field of technology. Guns tents clothing and primitive medicine all helped the Europeans in Africa.
