When We Ruled is by far the best general work on the ancient and medieval history of Black people there has ever been. The original landmark publication, superbly illustrated with high quality photographs, maps and drawings, provides an extraordinary and cutting-edge synthesis of the archaeological data, the documentary evidence, and the historical linguistic research.
It recounts the fascinating story of the origin and development of indigenous civilisations across the vast panorama of the African continent.
Robin Walker, historian and author, also known as the Black History Man, has teamed up with Avril’s Walks and Talks to take a group of people around the British Museum to showcase the artefacts that could once be found in Africa long before colonisation.

Egypt features highly in this tour with explanations of how the Egyptians lived, worked, and prayed, as well as visiting the museum’s African section in the Sainsbury’s Gallery which illustrates how Africans lived and worked pre-colonisation.

If you’ve ever wanted to visit the British Museum but could never find the time, now is the time. Your guide will show you the museum from a point of view that isn’t often seen. This tour lasts for 2 hours and has stairs* within the museum. Arrive early as security measures are taken at the main gate.
