The Republic of Sierra Leone is located on the southwestern coast of West Africa. This small nation of roughly 7 million people was first discovered by outsiders when a Portuguese explorer named Pedro de Sintra arrived in 1462. From 1800 to 1961, the nation now known as Sierra Leone was controlled by the United Kingdom as a colony. Most of the population at that time comprised displaced Africans who were brought to the region by the British following the abolition of the slave trade in Britain in 1807. In 1961, the Republic of Sierra Leone gained full independence from the United Kingdom.
