The article examines 19th century British documentation on the Central African village Nyangwe and its inhabitants produced by the three British explorers (D. Livingstone, V.L. Cameron, and H.M.Stanley) who visited this settlement in the 1870s. It extends recent work on 19th century African urbanization to consider how such urban history might be written with recourse to representations of Nyangwe in the archive of Victorian exploration. It highlights some of the issues inherent in using the archive for this purpose. It argues for a new methodology that uses recent historical, anthropological, and linguistic scholarship. It examines Victorian explorer representations of the Wagenya, an African tribe inhabiting the Lualaba River
