The Industrious Kingdom of Benin, its Economy, Zenith and Eventual Decline


<b>The Industrious Kingdom of Benin, its Economy, Zenith and Eventual Decline</b>
57 
Little is known about the Kingdom of Benin's city walls -- a series of ramparts, ditches, moats and standing walls covering 6500 sqkm – four times longer than the great walls of china, some 60ft high from trough to crest with several gates restricting entrance to the city built between the 9th and 15th centuries and Benin's status as one of the major trading nations of the premodern era.
