If you use the verbose flag on svn log, you'll also see which paths
were affected, and for copied paths, which paths they were copied
from. For example:

$ svn log -v http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/tags/1.5.0/ --limit 1
r31785 | hwright | 2008-06-19 00:44:46 -0500 (Thu, 19 Jun 2008) | 1 line
Changed paths:
    A /tags/1.5.0 (from /branches/1.5.x:31699)
    M /tags/1.5.0/subversion/include/svn_version.h

Tagging 1.5.0 with svn_version.h matching tarball.

You can see that the 1.5.0 tag was copied from the 1.5.x branch. If
you omit the --limit 1 option, you get history back through the
branch, and back through when that branch was originally copied from
