In addition to the items below, each of the cultural objects shown in the Digital Benin catalogue has a ‘history file’ in the archives of the World Museum in Liverpool. These ‘history files’ contain information about provenance and acquisition; some are more extensive than others. The World Museum has also developed these resources which explore the relationship between Liverpool and the Kingdom of Benin:
