Best Answer

The history of Europeans performing slave trade activities last many centuries. During this period, tribal Chieftains and other Africans often took manufactured goods from Europeans in exchange for slaves. Often gold and silver were also precious metals used to buy slaves. Some slaves, however, were actually kidnapped. There is no precise record of what was bartered or funds paid to obtain slaves.
