In this special episode of archaeological context, I want to highlight a bit of a different topic, as we will focus on a time period and especially geographical region, not often featured in archaeological discussions: A 17thcentury UNESCO world heritage site, located on the Westcoast of Africa. Specifically, we will explore Christiansborg Castle in Osu, a suburb of Accra, the capitol of Ghana. I aim to cover the interesting and dark history, as well as results of recent excavations and I had the pleasure to talk about this with Prof Fritz Biveridge from the University of Ghana.
