Benin Expedition 120 Years On

This year 2017 marks 120 years ago when the Benin Punitive Expedition by the British took place.

The Benin-Expedition-120-years-on website presents events as they happen daily in real time.

The website consists of comprehensive accounts and analysis of events leading up to, during and after the expedition of February 1897. Newspaper clips which show reactions in Britain to the Benin Massacre of January 4 1897 and the subsequent plans of the British Admiralty for revenge are published in real time.

Both internal and external links on the website present a rounded history of the Benin Kingdom.

This is a website worth reading through.
