File photograph of the statue of Cecil Rhodes on the facade of Oriel College in Oxford
The statue of Cecil Rhodes is seen on the facade of Oriel College in Oxford, southern England, in this file photograph dated December 30, 2015. The chancellor of the University of Oxford responded in January 2016 to a student campaign to remove a statue of 19th century colonialist Cecil Rhodes from one of the university's colleges by warning against rewriting history according to today's moral standards. Inspired by protests at the University of Cape Town in South Africa, which led to its statue of Rhodes being removed in April 2015, the "Rhodes Must Fall in Oxford" campaign says the statue at Oriel College celebrates a legacy of racism and violence.

A member of the Mau Mau War Veterans Association (MMWVA) gestures after the inauguration of a memorial to victims of torture and ill-treatment by the British colonialists during the Kenya "Emergency" at Uhuru Park's Freedom Corner, in Kenya's capital Nairobi, September 12, 2015. The memorial follows a multi-million dollar compensation settlement, agreed by Britain in 2013, for thousands of Kenyans tortured by colonial forces during an uprising at the tail end of the British Empire. The torture took place during the so-called Kenyan "Emergency" of 1952-60, when fighters from the Mau Mau movement attacked British targets, causing panic among white settlers and alarming the government in London. The Kenya Human Rights Commission has estimated 90,000 Kenyans were killed or maimed and 160,000 detained during the uprising. REUTERS/Thomas Mukoya

A former British colonial administration building with a covered stairway looks out over the bay from the Hill Station neighbourhood of Sierra Leone's capital Freetown April 25, 2012. It is often said in Freetown that these houses, which were built for British colonial administrators, came to West Africa flat-packed from the London department store Harrods. The current inhabitants of Hill Station, Sierra Leonean civil servants and their families, say they do sometimes still get electricity. Pipe-borne water is now non-existent though.

Painted metal covers the walls of a traditional colonial-era Board House dating back about a century in the Murray Town neighbourhood of Sierra Leone's capital Freetown April 28, 2012. The Board House style has been in steady decline for decades, as stone and concrete became more fashionable. Many of the homes are now dilapidated and patched with sheets of rusted metal to keep out rain during the wet season. Picture taken April 28, 2012.

Old wooden planks cover the facade of a traditional colonial-era Board House dating back about a century in the Murray Town neighbourhood of Sierra Leone's capital Freetown April 28, 2012. The surviving Board Houses are thought to be around 100 years old. In 1940 a British colonial ordinance forbade the construction of thatched dwellings as the original Board Houses were called due to fire hazard. By that stage though the style was already in decline, as stone and later concrete became more fashionable. Picture taken April 28, 2012.

Board Houses are a reconstruction of cabin-like structures built in the 18th century on the American eastern seaboard. There were some modifications though, notably a three-foot base layer of porous local stone (seen here) that helped anchor the house down during Sierra Leone's torrential wet season.

Former American slaves and free blacks sought refuge with the British during the American Revolutionary War. After the British defeat they were evacuated to Nova Scotia in Eastern Canada, and in 1792 a contingent came to Sierra Leone and began building Board Houses, known as 'bode ose' in the krio vernacular.

The arepa is to Venezuelans what the hamburger is to Americans or the tortilla to Mexicans.
