Ghana is a country located in West Africa. It is bordered by Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) to the west, Burkina Faso to the north, Togo to the east, and the Gulf of Guinea to the south.
The word Ghana means "Warrior King" and is derived from the ancient Ghana
Empire. Prior to contact with Europeans trade between the Akan and various African states flourished due to Akan's
gold wealth. Trade with European states began after contact with the Portuguese
in the 15th century, and the British established the Gold Coast Crown colony in
1874 over parts but not all of the country.
The Gold Coast achieved independence from the United Kingdom in 1957.
