West Africa Silent Trade

This storyboard does not have a description.
They put some gold dust next to the goods, beat the drum, and left.
Later, the traders returned.
If the amount of gold dust was acceptable, they took it and left.
If not, they went away and waited for the Wangarans to return and leave more gold dust.
The groups bargained back and forth this way until the trade was complete.
This system of silent barter had two advantages. First it allowed people who spoke different languages to conduct trades. Second, it allowed the Wangarans to guard the secret of where their gold mines were located.
