Nigeria, a country rich in culture has many almost forgotten historical artefacts. Although some efforts have been made to preserve these precious pieces of history but more needs to be done if we want our future generation to learn and enjoy a piece of this history. www.westernmall.co.uk presents 'Sights, Sounds and Artifacts of the almost forgotten cultures in Nigeria'.

First on our list is the Alok Ikom Monoliths. The Alok Ikom Monoliths is one of the most amazing piece of history in Nigeria. Imagine 300 carved stone standing upright in circles each facing each other in groups. This is not just ordinary stones. They stones have images and inscriptions on it making them look like phallus. It’s an amazing sight that draws history lovers year in year out.

Osun-Osogbo Grove is not just an ancient group of artifacts. It is a scared place for the worshipers of Osun the goddess of the river. The groove encompasses sacred shrines, sanctuaries, sculptures and art works all of which is created in honour of the goddess of fertility Osun.

Ruins from lost civilization has been recorded all over the world but very little is known about the Nok settlement located in Jaba local government area. It was here that the Terracotta figurine was discovered.

A huge wall built centuries ago in Kano is one our list today. This wall covers a 14km radius and has a spiritual, cultural and historical significance.

It's was a wonderful and eye opening expeinece researching this article. I hope that we as Nigerian's start embracing our culture.
