Event Details

Former BBC and Al Jazeera journalist Barnaby Phillips tells the dramatic and tragic tale of the Benin Bronzes; the story of a powerful West African kingdom and British imperial greed. He explores their removal in 1897, the subsequent dispersal of the Bronzes amongst the world’s great museums and private collections, and the intense debate about their future. Based for the BBC in Mozambique, Angola, Nigeria and South Africa, Barnaby Phillips has gained access to an extraordinary range of people involved  from the Benin royal family to the descendants of British officers of 1897.
