  • The gold and salt trade in africa had many caravans traveling for miles and going from place to place day and night
  • Silent bartering was the trade as it was someone would wait until the purchaser made a deal the other would believe is a good deal for the gold and/or salt while the gaurds kept watch
  • While the caravans worked and traded they payed taxes to enter and exit the cities meaning that the "Middle man" would gain more and grew to one of the wealthiest empires in history
  • The Salt was mined and cut into slabs so that the camels would carry them more easily
  • Gold was found in holes dug into the earth and found through digging and with a bowl they washed dirt and went to see whether the dirt held small amounts of gold which then would be traded and eventually to Kanka Musa
  • The Salt and Gold Trade that happened in Africa made Africa the wealthiest country in the world! Eventually their wealth would fall at the rule of the king Kanka Musa and him sacrificing their wealth to the rest of the world
