GhanaBook - 2005
Ghana, located on the Atlantic coast of West Africa, was once known as the Gold Coast because of its vast deposits of this mineral. In the 14th and 15th centuries Ghana was the home of powerful African kingdoms that traded both gold and slaves. Ghana's wealth attracted Europeans, and the British eventually incorporated it into their empire.
