Atorkor Slave Market

Slave Market (11)In the days of the slave trade, Atorkor became an important slave market. As a result, a memorial was erected in one of Keta’s excellent technical colleges to remember the hardships of the slave’s journey .

The memorial around the walls is a stark reminder of how the chiefs were tricked and bribed into allowing the westerners to take slaves from their tribes.

After visiting the fort, why not visit Atorkor for a fascinating yet disturbing glimpse into history of the slave trade market.
