Notes: [PENDING ARRIVAL , source GERT JAN BESTEBREURTJE ] From: 'Historische beschrijving der reizen.' - Fort Dixcove in Ghana: 'No other European station resisted as many sieges as the English fort at Dixcove. Its architectural transformations are remarkable, and exceptionally wel documented, while a thorough restoration, undertaken in 1954, has given opportunity to examine almost every portion of the structure' ; Slave trade ;(Lawrence, Trade castles & forts of West Africa, p.292).
