This contribution presents a catalogue of material culture used in the gold Coast before , as it is represented in published written sources. The author points out the importance of available sources on this topic, which contrasts with their rather limited and often improper use. He suggests the geographic scope of this tool could be broadened. Written sources, I argued, can be crucial for identifying objects in terms of chronology, geography, use and significance. Taking the Gold Coast as a possible example, I finished a first draft for a short book on these lines in , but I have never found time to prepare it for publication. Today it would probably make more sense to turn my original project into a website potentially extendable to other regions and periods.

History in Africa

Randy J. Annamaboe, located on the Gold Coast in modern-day Ghana, was a sleepy Fante fishing village when Dutch traders arrived there in Like other Atlantic towns and cities, Annamaboe grew as a conduit for trade. Its traders funneled African trade goods -primarily enslaved peoples but also gold, maize and other provisions - to Europe and the Americas and it brought in a variety of products from Europe and around the world in exchange - fabrics, metals, manufactured goods, alcohol and tobacco - and distributed those goods into the interior. The Atlantic world is defined by the movement of goods, ideas and peoples around it, and much of that movement operated through the urban hubs that grew up around the Atlantic.

This article briefly examines the consequences of the European presence on the Gold Coast, focusing on archaeological, ethnographic, and historical data from the African settlement of Elmina, Ghana. Documentary sources indicate that there was extensive change in sociopolitical institutions, economic relations, and other aspects of Gold Coast society in the centuries following the advent of European trade in the late fifteenth century. Archaeological survey and excavation of some 30 structures at Elmina similarly indicates a great deal of change in construction technology and material culture during the post-European contact period. However, examination of artefact patterning and associations indicates that in certain respects there was little change in terms of people's shared world view and belief systems.

As the only person on Planet Earth who read every paper in History in Africa , I find it especially invidious to choose only one of them as having a singular impact on my ways of thinking.
