Empire of Ancient Ghana

African History Did not begin by Slavery.

The Empire of Ghana was located in Western Africa in what is today the countries of Mauritania, Senegal, and Mali. The region lies just south of the Sahara Desert and is mostly savanna grasslands. Major rivers in the region such as the Gambia River, Senegal River, and the Niger River served as the means of transportation and trade.

The capital city of Ancient Ghana was Koumbi Saleh. This is where the King of Ghana lived in his royal palace. Archeologists estimate that up to 20,000 people lived in and around the capital city.

Note: The Ancient Ghana Empire, has nothing to do with modern Ghana. It is located 400 miles North West of modern Ghana, in northern Senegal, Southern Mauritania and southern mall.
