The Country's Fascinating History

Evidence shows that people have lived in the region since at least 500 B.C. Recorded history puts the European contact as far back as the mid-1400s when an explorer from Portugal named Pedro de Sintra made maps of the hills surrounding present day Freedom Harbour. He called them the Lion Mountains. Eventually, the region took on the Italian version of this name, Sierra Leone.

In the late 1700s, a settlement began in the country called Province of Freedom. The colony was established by England for rescued and freed slaves of African descent. The United Kingdom retained the country as a colony until granting it independence in 1961. Since that time, the government has changed hands a few times and a civil war was endured. Today, the country has a parliament and a president.
