Storyboard Text

  • The silent trade was the trading method used by Arabia, North and West africa in the middle ages to avoid conflict and usually took place at the edge of a river in areas around the southern forests of Wangara.
  • made by Max, Colin and Marcus
  • The Wangarans who have an abundance of gold need salt to preserve their food.
  • The north africans who have an abundance of salt need gold for trade with europe.
  • Over time the two realized this, but ran into an obstacle... they didn't have a common language! Therefore the the silent trade was developed so that both sides could get what they needed without offending the other
  • The silent trade had a unique process though, first the north africans would leave their salt and other goods, bang a drum and then leave.
  • The north africans would then walk away and wait at a further location
  • The Wangarans would walk from their own further location and inspect the good if they wanted to buy them
