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 contains first-hand comprehensive accounts by those involved in both the Benin Massacre and the Benin Punitive Expedition of February 1897. These are accompanied by present day balanced analyses of the events leading up to, during and after the expedition.
Newspaper reports published at the time 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 with the events. They show how these events were reported on and viewed globally.
This website can be used as a reference point for both The Benin Massacre (BM News page --->) and The Benin Punitive Expedition (BPE 1897 page--->).
Both internal and external links on the website present a rounded history of the Benin Kingdom.
