Nigeria: Wall of Benin Kingdom

According to Wikipedia, The Walls of Benin were a series of earthworks made up of banks and ditches, called Iya in the local language. They extend for some 16,000 km in all, in a mosaic of more than 500 interconnected settlement boundaries. The Walls of Benin City were the world’s largest man-made earth structure. Fred Pearce wrote in New Scientist: They extend for some 160 km in all, in a mosaic of more than 500 interconnected settlement boundaries. They cover 2,510 sq. miles (6,500 square kilometres) and were all dug by the Edo people. In all, they are four times longer than the Great Wall of China and consumed a hundred times more material than the Great Pyramid of Cheops. They took an estimated 150 million hours of digging to construct, and are perhaps the largest single archaeological phenomenon on the planet.

Constructed over a period of 600 years, the Great Walls of Benin was located at the southern border of the defunct Benin Kingdom, which was one of the oldest and most highly developed states in West Africa.

It was brought down by the British in 1897.

Tragic.

New face of Idanre: Ondo lifts century old communal fiesta to world class entertainment extravaganza

By YINKA OLUDAYISI FABOWALE, Ibadan

 

Idanre HillsThe visitor needed no telling he had arrived Idanre. The sprawling mighty boulders that formed an impregnable natural vanguard of sentries round the town proclaimed it. The famed rocks formed a natural boundary that foreclosed further expansion or development thus “creating a linear settlement and a sense of order imposed by nature itself” that necessarily compelled admiration. At the same time, they elicited awe with their intimidating sizes and towering heights with which they seemed to watch, warn and dare would-be-aggressors against their charge, the town.
