Atlantic Slave Trade in 3D by Zamani project

Trading castles and fortresses along the West African coast bear testimony to one of the saddest chapters of human history, the Atlantic Slave trade. The documentation of St. George’s castle in Elmina, Ghana, in 2006, was one of the first initiatives of the Zamani project. The experience drove Prof. Rüther, Zamani leader, to initiate a project thanks to which most of the architectural sites of the slave trade would be documented and relevant information gathered; Zamani decided then to create a Slave Trade Database, presenting 3D digital models of monuments and sites related to the slave trade together with other spatial and contextual information. To date four Castles and Forts have been documented in addition to Elmina. At present, Zamani is in quest of funding for further field campaigns in sites of the African West coast, elsewhere in Africa and possibly in the Americas. Continue reading
