In a 25 minutes documentary, Historian Ed Emeka Keazor brings to light the legacy of an archaeologist and Ukwu Custodian, Thurstan Shaw in Nigeria. In the 1960’s the Cambridge archaeologist and his team made an unbelievable discovery: a 1000 year old civilization in the heart of Igboland, including complex works of ancient art. Keazor narrates the life of Shaw in Nigeria through interviews with him before his passing away, rare film footage and photos.
The documentary screening will be accompanied by jazz and poetry performance by The Lagos Jazz Series and poet, Iheabetu Evans respectively.
This event is open to members of Nigerian Field Society and interested public.
