The Gold Coast was declared a British colony in the same year, the Asante, and still outside the colonial borders. It is, therefore, a delicate balance between the vegetation and the fertility of the soil, which can be disturbed due to uncontrolled burning or overuse. In its proximity there seems to be a Lupemban culture ( see Lupemban industry ), which probably dates from the desiccating Sahara; it occurs in the basal gravels of the valleys carved during the previous pluvial period.. With the exception of the tropical black earths, known locally as Akuse clays, most of these soils are of little importance agriculturally. By the mid-18th century, the coastal scene was marked by the presence of over 40 forts controlled by Dutch, British and Danish merchants. Of the excavated sites, Nsuta, with decorated ceramic and coil beads, it is believed that the early middle ages; the Sekondi village and cemetery, with fine pottery, stone axes, quartz, and shell beads, lasted until the Portuguese times. The center of the Empire of Ghana was approximately 500 miles (800 km) North-West of the nearest part of the modern state, and it is quite certain that no part of the latter lay within its borders. The basin is dominated by the Volta lake, an artificial lake, in the Central part of the country behind the Akosombo dam and covers about 3,275 square miles (8,500 square kilometers)

Apart from a few pebble tools from high river terraces, the first industry is Late Chellean in the Southeast. Castles and palaces, many of which still dot the Ghanaian coast today, were constructed by Europeans to protect their trade interests. The only extensive areas of young rocks, which are younger than about 136 million years old, in the wide, lagoon-fringed estuary of the Volta, about 50 miles (80 km) East of Accra, and in the extreme southwest of the country, along the Axim coast.. With the older and more resistant rocks of the Precambrian peneplain, forming a low, picturesque coast of sandy bays and rocky headlands. Continental air moves southward with the North-East winds, known in Western Africa as the harmattan, and maritime tropical air moves northward with the southwest trades. In General, most soils are formed in place from parent rock material was subjected to prolonged erosion and, consequently, reduced fertility. The political uncertainty after the Asante invasion of the leadership of Asantehene Osei Bonsu hinders the development of new professions to replace meant that the slave-trade. Kwame Nkrumah encouraged the development of sports to forge, to create a national identity, international recognition for the emerging country. The management Board is in addition to the preservation of the traditional Asante buildings in the North-East of Kumasi; the last remaining of their kind, they collectively listed as a UNESCO world heritage site in 1980. The Paleozoic sediments consist mostly of beds of shales (laminated sediments, mostly of particles of clay) and sandstones in which strata of limestone occur in places. Leaching is more pronounced in the wet South, while the formation of laterite is more common in the drier North. As a consequence, only the unique and indispensable of these forms have managed to survive, without any special public support or patronage. There is evidence that parts of modern Ghana North of the forest were achieved by Mande traders (search for gold-dust) from the 14th century and Hausa merchants (in the desire, kola-nuts) from the 16th century. However, trade went on under the new regime, which was averse to assuming formal control of the territory, dominated by the fortresses, and in the 1860s, as a result of this British restraint and the growth, from the 1820s onward, the Christian missionary education, the Fante States, attempted to organize a European-style Confederation of independent British and Asante control. With greater precipitation, the forest spread to the North and the people retreated in the direction of the Sahara, if the precipitate has subsided, evidenced by the present forest

and 18 century are all, with the exception of the Kumasi fort (1897), located on the coast.. However, a revival in the importance of these values and a closer identity with traditional social roots, as expressed in the institution of the chieftaincy, is gaining ground among the urban diaspora drawn from different parts of Ghana. Originally, several Ga settlements established on the site, Accra developed into a prosperous trading centre; today, it serves as a commercial and educational centre of the district. But between 1803 and 1814, the Danes, the English and Dutch had each, in turn, their slave trades, and the gold is banned in most of the trade was on the decline. The States North of the forest, hitherto the wealthiest and most powerful, declined in the face of new combinations, further to the South. They occupy a large area called the Voltaian basin in the North-Central part of the country, where the height is rarely more than 500 feet (150 meters). Specialized craft villages you will find anywhere in Ghana continue to engage in traditional ceremonies and create fine traditional products for wealthy professional Ghanaians and tourists. Dance, music, theatre, painting, sculpture, and all come within the competence of the Council and of the National theatre and the \\\” Ghana National Art Museum. Such traditions link up with other evidence, to suspect, that the territory that today was Ghana for many centuries a meeting place for the two great currents of West African history. The forts built by various European powers, mostly between the 14. To preserve In an attempt-a monopoly of the trade, the Portuguese initiated the practice of erecting stone fortresses (Elmina Castle, built in 1482, was leased to the first) on the coast on sites of the native States
