Storyboard Text

  • Mother, when will uncle come back and why is he taking so long?
  • Believe it or not son, your uncle has a very important role. We trade in order to live. 
  • But I don't understand mother.  How can we survive and trade in this place?
  • Ahh you ask many questions my son. We traders from North Africa spread the practice of Islam by crossing the Sahara. We trade with other people and this desert provides protection for us.
  • Where does Unlce go? And what's it like there?
  • Your uncle goes to the Trans-saharan trade route. It was very hard to get across because of sandstorms and the extreme heat, and that's why uncle takes so long. 
  • I collect gold and salt for our family and for trading other necessary products we might need!
  • the more we trade, we get more of the other natural resources we need and the more we trade, the more we have to pay for taxes and that money goes to the king who makes and supports the empire. 
  • but how can trading help an empire get bigger?
  • of course.
  • ah thank you, I understand now.
