The Benin Massacre: The Kingdom the British Burned
The fascinating true story of how a trade mission in 1897 ended in murder and the destruction of one of West Africa's tribal kingdoms. A period of history our last owners of Lauriston Castle would have been very aware of. David Clarke is a historian and specialist in the military conflicts of the late Victorian British Empire and the Great War. He is a teacher in Edinburgh.
