Benin (Brave New World) v. 61

Benin (Brave New World)

  1. Tomatekh
    Adds Benin to the base game.

    The Benin or Edo Empire was a large pre-colonial African state in what is now modern Nigeria, Benin, and Togo, centered on the Niger River Delta. While it existed, the Benin Empire was an economic and political power that unified a large number of West African ethnic groups. At their height, the traditional city walls of Benin City are understood to have been one of the largest earthworks in not only Africa, but the world. Today, Benin's cultural legacy survives through the world famous Benin Bronzes, as well as the Oba of Benin who serves as the symbolic leader of the Edo people.
