This chapter examines the similarities in the medieval Sahel and north-west Europe within the specific context of trade, and particularly of traders. It outlines the common themes of trade in central Sahel and north-west Europe including the mechanisms for the movement of goods and forms of trade. The findings indicate that the commerce in slaves is a strong thread of similarity and a concrete link between north-west Europe and the central Sahel.
