The Stayed the Stolen: An Immersive Virtual Experience of Cape Coast Castle is an immersive and interactive virtual reality experience of Cape Coast Castle in Cape Coast Ghana, one of the most important sites out of the 40 slave castles or commercial forts that dot the coastline of Ghana.

Developed to reach a broad audience of scholars, teachers, students and the general public, The Stayed & The Stolen is an innovative, international project that provides a necessary and critical corrective to digital history projects on the transatlantic slave trade that fail to consider the significance of Africa in this history.
