Introduction to Ancient Ghana
Ancient Ghana was one of the top three most powerful empires of it's time due to the extremely prosperous trade routes and its intimidating reputation. This was because of Ancient Ghana's huge military strength. One of the most interesting things about this empire, is the fact that it did not actually produce any of the resources that it traded in. Instead they would tax every resource that travelled through their nation. Ancient Ghana existed from approximately 300 to 1200 AD and eventually fell when it was invaded by Sumagure Kanbe. It was a homogenous society until Muslims from the north invaded and took over. However, the muslims were overthrown by the remaining Ghanaians soon after. Ancient Ghana was a rich and powerful nation, it had huge military strength, great economic wealth, and a strongly governed society. It truly was one of the great empires of its time.
