History of The Gambia
Arab traders provided The Gambia’s first written accounts in the 9th and 10th centuries. During the 10th century, muslim merchants and scholars established communities in several West African commercial centres. Both groups established trans-Saharan trade routes, leading to a large trade in slaves, gold, ivory (exports) and manufactured goods, etc., (imports).
