The Gold Coast

The Portuguese were the first Europeans to visit the Gold Coast, and set up a trading post where Elmina stands today.

The Dutch replaced the Portuguese by 1642, while the Ashanti controlled the trade routes around Kumasi and expanded their Empire to become predominant among the native states by the middle of the 18th century.

The British also established forts on the coast, and although they lost an early war to the Dutch, they continued to expand their trading.

By 1874 the coast was entirely under English control and was designated a crown colony, not without sporadic bloodshed with the Ashanti.

The restored fort at Cape Coast is well worth a visit.
