History[]

Berber caravans played a crucial role in the thriving salt trade that traversed much of Africa, whether in the Sahara or the Afar Triangle. In the premodern world, salt was of crucial value not only as a seasoning but also as a preservative. Although slow to mine and refine, salt paid dividends and was at one point in time more valuable than gold.
