Invented in Africa these concrete giants, called dolosse, singular dolos, disperse the energy of waves, to protect human settlements from the angry sea. They were developed in East London, a port city in South Africa, in 1963 and are now found in their millions all around the world.

Dolosse, the large concrete structures used internationally to protect harbours, seawalls and coastlines around the world, was invented by South African, Eric Merrifield.
