Cape Coast Castle - An English settlement on the coast of Africa 1828
At first legitimate trade between Britain and Africa was conducted through well defended fortresses or 'castles'. A number of these were established around the African coast. Here merchants and traders from the interior could make contact with the ships' masters and company officers who arrived from Europe in merchant vessels. Europeans and Africans were closely watched and monitored by British appointed officials and military officers.
