Today we will be exploring how artefacts from the past can help to build up a picture of what a civilisation was like. We will examine and evaluate different sources of evidence about Benin and say what they can teach us about Benin culture.
Use the Powerpoint and the resources below to help you with your learning. There are some sheets you can use as a template for your work if you have a printer. But don't worry if you don't as you can draw and write out your work in your book.
You are going to be pretending to be a museum curator today and will be thinking about how to present and organise artefacts from Benin. Use the websites below , or any other that you fancy, to take some virtual tours of museums to give you ideas on how to present your artefacts.
