Synopsis

Benin 900-1897 CE by Alice Harman

Who were the leaders of Benin? What was life like for ordinary people? Why was Benin destroyed? What are Benin bronzes? This book helps children at Key Stage 2 discover the answers to these and other fascinating questions. It also recommends sites on the Internet and sources in local libraries where they can find out more about Benin 900-1897CE. The detective shows how to create a project about people's lives during the rise and fall of Benin, make animal sculptures like those that were offered up to Benin's gods and write a letter to Benin's leader explaining your thoughts about the slave trade. Packed with fascinating information, The History Detective Investigates series inspires children's curiosity to find out more about the past.
