We have frequently referred in our Editorial Notes to the state of archaeology in countries for whose government and cultural facilities the British Government is responsible, contrasting its attitude with that of some other countries. It seems therefore opportune to reprint in full (with the permission of the Nigerian Government) the ‘Annual Report of the Antiquities Section for the year 1946’, which is the latest to reach us. It is signed by Mr K. C. Murray, Surveyor of Antiquities, over the date 20 January 1947. Need we add that, in thus reprinting his Report, we hope to strengthen the hands of Mr Murray and those others who are struggling to establish a proper Department of Archaeology and Anthropology in Nigeria?—Eds.
