Slave steps!

We docked in a beautiful cove on the south side of one of the islands, then began the walk up the slave steps.

"Once the domain for the powerful Caulker family - Thomas Corker arrived in Sierra Leone from England in 1684 - Banana Islands was a bastion for slave trading, and quickly became a well-to-do spot for colonials and Krio families alike." from...Bradt Travel Guide
