This book tells the grim story of Cape Coast Castle in present-day Ghana, the African headquarters of the British slave trade from 1664 to 1807. From this massive building on the Atlantic shore, countless men, women, and children were sold as slaves and carried away on slave ships, often to North America. Here we read about some of the people who lived, worked, or were imprisoned within the Castle, as well as about its construction and upkeep, the arrivals and departures of ships, and the negotiations with local African leaders.
