Bunce Island
 
  • Bunce Island was the largest British slave castle on the Rice Coast of West Africa. Founded around 1670, it exported tens of thousands of African captives to North America and the West Indies until the British Parliament finally closed it down in 1808. Declared a national monument in 1948, Bunce Island was famous to be a major European commercial fort built during the slave trading era. It was a meeting place for European traders and African merchants. Trading of slaves, gold, ivory, and camwood was very famous during the 1800’s, and a large number of slaves sent to South Carolina and Georgia were traded on this island.
