The Portuguese were the first Europeans to visit the 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.
