Let’s explore how they flourished as a trading nation, meeting their terrifying gods along the way!

"Session was very informative and created a clear timeline for the children of the Kingdom of Benin. Children left the workshop with a better understanding of the culture and the people that lived in the kingdom. The role play aspects of the workshops of the session were excellent and provided children with a better understanding of the day to day life. Our children are used to topics that are more related to British history so this was a nice exception to that, they were intrigued by the information they learned about the continent of Africa. The workshop was inclusive and every child could access the discussions and activities."
