McDougal Littell WebQuest


This modern African trader leads a camel caravan carrying salt.
By completing the WebQuest Empires of Ancient West Africa, you have learned about the trade, history and geography, and culture of West Africa between A.D. 1000 and 1500. The empires of Ghana, Mali, and Songhai developed on trade networks where culture was "traded" along with salt and gold. Many modern West Africans take great pride in the legacy of these ancient empires and many still live much as their ancestors did.
