The Iron Age Ceramics from the Tong Hills, Northern Ghana. Sequence and Comparative Perspective

Journal of African Archaeology, Volume 9 (1), 2011, pages 15-39, DOI 10.3213/1612-1651-10185

Abstract
The archaeology of Ghana north of 10 degrees remains little known, thus between 2004 and 2009 archaeological research was completed in the Tong Hills, the home of the Talensi ethno-linguistic group. An overview of the
research is presented here with especial emphasis placed on the ceramic traditions and chronology. These are contextualised within the archaeology of the wider region of northern Ghana.

Résumé
L'archéologie de Ghana au-delà de 10° N reste méconnue, c'est pourquoi une recherche archéologique a été menée entre 2004 et 2009 dans les collines Tong, la région du groupe ethno-linguistique Talensi. C'est une vue
d'ensemble de cette recherche qui est présentée ici avec un intérêt particulier pour les traditions céramiques et la chronologie. Celles-ci sont replacées dans le contexte plus large de l'archéologie du nord du Ghana.
