Teaching The Ghana Empire

The Ghana Empire

The Empire of Ghana was a fabulous land of gold and iron that flourished in West Africa hundreds of years ago. Named for its warrior king, Ghana developed magnificent cities and boasted a powerful army. For 600 years, the kings of the Empire of Ghana ruled supreme, until they were finally taken down by the powerful Mali Empire.
