KS2 webinar: Art in Ancient Benin

Soldiers on horseback, animals, and powerful royalty all feature in Benin art.

Be transported back to the 1500s when many brass plaques were made. What do they tell you about life in Benin at that time – about peoples’ beliefs, their rulers and way of life?

Join Lucy from the museum’s learning team to discover more about the creation and meaning of Benin art.
