Conflict and Warfare in Material Culture. The Case of Kasana, North Ghana
Conflict and Warfare in Material Culture. The Case of Kasana, North Ghana Ghana. 10 years’ of archaeological field-work in Ghana, both in the south and in the north of the country has recently been completed. Among very many important field-activities, including European installations in the South, work around Kasana (near Tumu) in the North is presented. Careful local studies are revealing iron production since the early 17th century AD and dense settlement with a regional market, warehouses, even the headquarters of a slave-hunting community of the late 19th century AD (possibly with a mosque). The still mainly traditional environment is adding a particular interest to the investigations. In appreciation, a small local museum has been erected, already a touristic site. A particular research topic focuses onreflection of conflict and warfare in material culture.
