Many people know about the Mali Empire and its famous ruler, Mansa Musa. But did you know there was a major empire that came before it?

The Ghana Empire is considered one of the greatest empires in African history. There was an abundance of gold in the region, and the Ghana Empire was a powerful trading partner. Advancements were made in administration, allowing it to become a dominant power in the region.


History comes alive in these pages. Here are just a few of the things you will learn about in this book:

  • What people groups called the Ghana Empire home;
  • The influence of Islam on the empire
