About the tour

The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade began around the mid-fifteenth century when Portuguese interests in Africa moved away from the fabled deposits of gold to a much more readily available commodity—enslaved people. An estimated 24 million enslaved Africans were shipped from Ghana alone during the roughly 400 years of the trade. Apart from the Portuguese, which other European countries were involved in the Trade of Enslaved Africans? What was the living conditions in the dark and dreary dungeons? Join Frank as we travel to the Cape Coast Castle as he unravel the horrors of the slave trade in Africa and the horrors of the World as a whole during this time.
