What were the trading post empire?
Trading-post empires are those empires in the earlier centuries (13-15th) which traded vast goods and set up trading posts. Trading posts were built by European traders along the coasts of Africa and Asia as a base for trade with the interior. Trading posts (or 'Factories') were islands of European law and sovereignty, but European authority seldom extended very fat beyond the fortified post.
