Discover the results of a recent investigation into motifs carved on an elephant tusk from the ancient Kingdom of Benin in Nigeria. Dr. Barbara Blackmun, Ph.D. and investigator, will demonstrate how the investigation of one ivory tusk (which has been on display in an American museum for at least one generation) has revealed an unusually dramatic story.
