This volume presents the results of archaeological research completed in the Department of Archaeology and Heritage Studies, University of Ghana, Legon. It provides a needed opportunity for indigenous publication and a profile of the Department as it repositioned itself in terms of its disciplinary identity and focus in encompassing ‘Heritage Studies’. The volume was largely completed during tenure of a visiting scholarship in the Department by the Editor, and, empirically, it spans the Late Stone Age through to recent historical archaeology of the nineteenth century AD.
