Storyboard Text

  • Hi, we are, Natalie, Kayla, and Catherine.
  • They loaded salt blocks on all the camels.
  • They walked for 14 days to get to the trading place. If water was low they would kill a camel and take the water out of it's stomach. 
  • Silent bartering is a method of trading that took place during 400 and 800 CE. The West Africans and the North Africans used this method because they didn't need a common language, didn't need to be face to face, and wanted to avoid conflict. In all, they are getting what they need.
  • This is where they got into the trading place. 
  • This is the trading place. They traded salt, copper, cowrie, shells, kola nuts, hides, leather goods, ivory, slaves, and gold.
  • First, they mined salt from the salt mines and loaded it onto the backs of 30-60 camels.
  • Then they traveled through the Sahara Desert and it’s harsh conditions and environment.
  • The West Africans have a lot of gold that they don't need so they trade it for things they needed. 
  • When they arrive, before entering Taghaza, the trading center, they must pay a tax.
  • They must then meet up with the middle man to discuss a time and a place for the trade to take place.
  • First, the West put down gold, banged a drum, then walked away 2-3 miles.
