Depiction of trading between North and South Africa.

Storyboard Text

  • I am a trader from Taghaza, in North Africa, interested in trading with the Natives of Wangara in the South. I will trade salt for gold.
  • Now that I have paid the Trans-Saharan trade route taxes, I am back on the road to get to the Wanagaran forests to trade my salt for gold.
  • It is a very long and hard journey on the Trans-Saharan trade route to get to Wangara. A lot of caravans don't even make it to Ghana.
  • Now that I am in Ghana, I have to pay a heavy tax on all the goods I am bringing with me to the South.
  • Now that I am at the forests, I must leave my salt at the trading area. When I return, there will be gold here as well. If this amount of gold suits me, I take it and leave the salt. If not, I leave the gold and/or change the amount of salt and leave again. This continues until I agree with the Wangarans. This is called silent trading.
  • Once I am happy with the amount of gold, and they are happy with the amount of salt, I leave with my gold and head back to the North, once again paying taxes in Ghana.
