IGBO UKWU – A LOST CITY AND A LOST CIVILIZATION; WHAT THUSRTAN SHAW DID NOT TELL  FROM THE WORLD

Another area of concern was the puzzle of Igbo Ukwu and the enigmatic artefacts found

there, which according to Thurtan Shaw, are Indian in style. Igbo Ukwu was a puzzle which no

one could solve because it was not in any way related to any other civilization in or around

Nigeria. Igbo Ukwu bronzes stood alone in method of manufacture, technique and style, yet

Thurstan Shaw’s dating of Igbo Ukwu placed it close to Ife and Oyo as belonging to a period

dating from 800 to 900 AD.10 This dating created more problems for the study of Igbo History

because the Igbo Ukwu excavated goods had no relationship with any known Igbo historical

experience, and yet Shaw’s dating placed it too close to contemporary history, thus discouraging

the mythological approach to its analysis. Yet the events that produced the artefacts of Igbo

Ukwu clearly belonged to time immemorial, for no one within living memory knew anything

about  buried artefacts in the city, nor who made them and for  what  purpose! None  of the

folklore of the Igbo said anything about those artefacts buried in Igbo Ukwu. It is important to

mention that The Lost Testament   was co-authored  with  an Emeritus Professor of Theoretical

Physics Alex Animalu of  University of Nigeria, Nsukka. Professor Animalu has co-authored a

number of articles with the research team of the Catherine Acholonu Research Center, published

in the African Journal of Physics. He claims that our analyses of Igbo Ukwu geometric symbols

and their relationship to Egyptian pyramids is  making  a  highly  persuasive case for an African

revolution in Theoretical Physics.11
