Courtyard of Elmina Castle, Ghana

Courtyard of Elmina Castle, Ghana (
Originally uploaded by Aluka Digital Library

This is the courtyard of Elmina, in Ghana, which qualified as a trading post for a period until it was eventually used as a major depot on the slave trade. This courtyard would have been one of the last views newly captured slaves would have had of Africa before departing for the New World.

A shameless plug here, but this can also be found on Aluka.
