Release Date: 2015-04-26
Genre: Social Science

This collection of essays on archaeology and heritage studies is authored by local and expatriate scholars who are either past or current practitioners in archaeological work in Ghana. They are from Ghana, UK, US and Canada. The subject matter covered includes the history and evolution of the discipline in Ghana; the method and theory or 'how to do it' in archaeology, field research reports, and syntheses on findings from past and recent investigations. The eclectic or multidisciplinary strategy has been the research vogue in Ghanaian archaeology recently, and this is reflected in the various chapters. The essays engage with current theoretical trends in global archaeology and also focus on the role and status of archaeology as a discipline in Ghanaian society today. Archaeology is a relatively 'novel' subject to many in Ghana. This Reader will, therefore, be a huge asset to local students and experts alike. Foreign scholars will also find it very useful.

“Two words on the cover—Fiona McIntosh—always let me know I’m in for a good read.” Robin Hobb Fiona McIntosh is a new “Big Name” in Epic fantasy—and now she continues her remarkable Valisar Trilogy with Tyrant’s Blood, a breathtaking tale of heritage, vengeance, and destiny that returns readers to the world of violence and intrigue she introduced in Royal Exile. The story of the last remaining Valisar prince who must avenge the craven slaughter of his entire family, Tyrant’s Blood delivers on the promise of McIntosh’s earlier works—from Myrren’s Gift through the exceptional Percheron Saga. Tyrant’s Blood is another action packed treat for anyone who loves adventuring in Raymond E. Feist’s Midkemia or thrills to the dangerous wonders alive in the fantasy of Sara Douglass.
