Teacher Manual: Gold of Africa

This Art Institute manual introduces teachers to the African gold trade, a selection of gold-producing cultures, and types of objects made out of the precious metal as it tells the history of the trans-Saharan trade that helped to shape West African empires of Ghana, Mali, and Senegal. A map, glossary, suggested discussion questions, and a bibliography are included. (© 1992)
