I thought I'd share a clip from this wonderful documentary that I bought the other day called Lost Kingdoms of Africa.
Lost Kingdoms of Africa, documents the journey of art historian Dr. Gus Casley - Hayford to discover the mysterious hidden culture of pre-colonial Africa. He covers four of Africa's most important kingdoms located in Ethiopia, Benin, Zimbabwe, and Sudan.
The documentary is a rich body of work that I would recommend to anyone who is fascinated to know more about ancient African history.
The DVD series can be purchased at the BBC shop here
