This is an article I came accros in my myspace bulletin.
I remember a few years back reading history of how the Benin city was captured by the brits. it's a sad story.

The event also led to the town being burnt down and many artefacts being stolen(bronze and ivory works of art) and brought overseas to Britain. Nigerian Government have now asked for them back.


I hope u enjoy this article.
