Views of forts and castles along the Gold Coast, West Africa
Print depicting 11 forts. Europeans built large forts along the coast of West Africa to defend their trading interests from rivals and competitors. There were approximately 50 forts in a 300-mile stretch of coastline. Initially, they were built to protect the gold trade but as transatlantic slavery developed, the forts became increasingly used to house captives in windowless dungeons as they awaited the Middle Passage.
