Two 17th century African maps written by Europeans showing Hebrew communities in West Africa:

I have obtained medieval African maps written in the 17th century by the conquering Europeans. On the maps are shown geographical locations of Hebrew cities and Kingdoms that were later taken into Slavery.The First medieval African Map was Performed by the Sr. Danville Under the Patronage of the Duke of Orleans.” Revised and and Improved by Mr. Bolton(1766)



And another medieval African Map called Negroland and the adjacent countries also UPPER GUINEA showing the principal European Settlements and Distinguishing by Eman Bowen 1747 West Africa.



On the first map there is a city called Lamlam. In the 12th century Al Idrisi in his book entitled “Description of CENTRAL AFRICA,” wrote about a Hebrew colony in West Africa called Lam-Lam,. which was situated about 2 hundred miles West of Timbuktu.


“In the whole land of Lam- lam there are but two small cities, or as it were villages, and those are Malel and Dau, situated at the distance of four days’ journey from each other. Their inhabitants, as people of those parts relate, are JEWS, and most of them unbelieving and ignorant” ——–AL Edrisi Of Andalusia,Spain Description of CENTRAL AFRICA

“When any of all the inhabitants of the kingdom of Lamlam comes to have the use of his reason, he is burnt in the face and temples ; this they do to distinguish each other. All their countries and dominions are near a certain river(Niger River), flowing into the Nile. It is not known whether there is any inhabited place to the south of the king dom of Lamlam. That kingdom joins on the west to Mec- zara, on the east to Vancara(Wanagara), on the north to Ghana, and on the south to the desert ; and its people use a different language from those of Meczara and Ghana” ———–AL Edrisi Of Andalusia,Spain Description of CENTRAL AFRICA

Al Edrisi mentioned that Hebrews inhabited a area that stretched from an area called Mec- zara, on the east to Vancara(Wanagara), on the north to Ghana, and on the south to the desert. I have a close up look at the area that Edrisi is referring to.

Up Close of the Sr. Danville Map Note: The Hebrew settlements were along the Niger river From Sierra Leone to Mali down to the bight of Benin were Hebrew
settlements before the slave trade.



Outlined in RED Reads: According to Edrisi the land hereabouts was populated by Jews



Too the far right of the map outlined in red, There existed a Hebrew Kingdom of Exiled Falafjam or Falasha Jews Called SHANKALA. Here was the location of SHANKALA on the D’Anville Map of Africa up close


Al Edrisi also mentioned that the Hebrews that inhabited this area and the adjacent cites called Malel and Dau were being attacked by native African tribes and sent to Slave Traders and then sent to Slave Trading centers and then TRADED TO ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD.

“To the southward of Berissa, at the distance of ten days’ march, lies the land of Lam-lam, into which INCURSIONS are made by the inhabitants of Berissa(Mende), Salla, Takrur( Fulani) , and Ghana ; there they take numbers of captives, whom they carry away to their own countries, and dispose of to the merchants trading thither ; these afterwards sell them into all parts of the world”.———–AL Edrisi Of Andalusia,Spain Description of CENTRAL AFRICA

Another medieval African Map by Eman Bowen 1747 called Negroland shows
upper Guinea and the adjacent countries if you look close towards Guinea to the right of the Gold coast lies the Hebrew kingdom of JUDA of in French it was called Whidah.


To further prove this statement I have a quote from a scholar named J. Leighton Wilson from the book called J. Leighton Wilson Western Africa its history, condition and prospects 1856

“Whether the natives of the country have the Jewish distinction between diaboloi and daimonia in Northern Guinea is not certainly known, but the inhabitants of Southern Guinea undoubtedly have.”——–J. Leighton Wilson Western Africa its history, condition and prospects 1856 p 216

“Mixed up with these pagan nations and customs there are many obvious traces of Judaism, both in Northern and Southern Guinea ; and in the latter, some undoubted traces of a corrupted form of Christianity, which have probably traveled across the continent from ancient Ethiopia, where Christianity was once firmly established.”——- J. Leighton Wilson Western Africa its history, condition and prospect p 220

Muslim writers to write about the Hebrews in Africa and the enslavement of the Hebrews in Africa

One 15th century Hebrew writer named Leo Africanus was an Andalusian Moorish diplomat and author who is best known for his book Descrittione dell’Africa. In this book he wrote about a POWERFUL HEBREW KINGDOM in the 15th century. This kingdom was located to the right of the Egyptian Nile River. Here is his quote from his book:

“Howbeit they say that upon Nilus do inhabit two great
and populous nations, one of Jews towards the west, under the government of a mightie king”.—–Leo Africanus: The Description of Africa Vol 1 p 32

This Hebrew Kingdom with a mightie king to the right of the Nile river was called Kouko

Here is the Kingdom Kouko from the medieval African Map Performed by the Sr. Danville


Leo Africanus As a young man accompanied his uncle on a diplomatic mission to the Maghreb, reaching as far as the city of Timbuktu (c. 1510), then part of the Songhai Empire.

In his book entitled Descrittione dell’ Africa (Description of Africa) Leo Africanus wrote about the HATRED that the Native Africans had against HEBREWS that lived in West Africa about 500 yrs ago.

This is what he wrote while on his travels into WEST AFRICA in 1526:

“In Garura there were some very rich Jews. The intervention of the preacher (Muhammid al-Maghili) of Tlemcen set up the pillage of their goods, and most of them have been killed by the population. This event took place during the same year when the Jews had been expelled from Spain and Sicily by the Catholic King(1492- 16th Century)

Leo Africanus further wrote:

“The king (Askia) is a declared enemy of the Jews. He will not allow any to live in the city. If he hears it said that a Berber merchant frequents them or does business with them, he confiscates his goods.”

Shalam!
