The Nok Civilization

Just northeast of Yorubaland in Nigeria was the Nok Civilization which is strongly related to the Yoruba and considered by anthropologists to have been the artistic mother culture of all West-Central Africa medieval kingdoms. The Nok civilization thrived between 1000 bc and 300 ce. Their life-size terracotta statues are amongst the most spectacular of classical antiquity anywhere in the world.
