Pangani - Tanzania

The historic 18th and 19th century buildings of Pangani, built by African, Omani and Indian merchants, are testament to the vibrant networks of trade which once existed between Africa, India and Arabia. 

Pangani, one of several such entrepôts along the Swahili Coast, ideally situated at the river mouth, saw goods transshipped from ocean-going vessels to river craft and caravans for dispersal inland. Similarly, goods from the African interior arrived for loading and exporting afar.

ArchaeoLink is working with the UK Arts & Humanities Research Council-funded Co-Production Networks for Community Heritage in Tanzania (CONCH) project researchers and Pangani community members to develop educational programmes showcasing this facet of the Swahili Coast’s rich cultural history.
