Ancient Benin

This book in the History Detective Investigates series explores the fascinating world of the Benin Kingdom, a West African civilisation of vital historical importance that was tragically destroyed by invading British forces. Children can learn about the lives of everyday people, discover the incredible art for which the kingdom is still famous and try out fun, hands-on activities to help them gain a deeper understanding of this period of history.

Pssst… If you want to buy your own copy, obviously feel free! But I wrote this book specially for schools and libraries, so do check whether your local or school library has a copy to borrow.
