Abstract

Soils and 6 potsherds from Frederiksgave (a former Danish plantation in southern Ghana, in use from 1830-1850), together with potsherds from 2 likely production sites at Ga and Dangme Shai were investigated by visual inspection, total element analysis and X-ray diffraction and the results analyzed by principal component analysis (PCA) and cluster analysis. The investigation clearly showed that the Frederiksgave pots were not locally produced but came from other production sites indicating trading interaction between the plantation and surrounding settlements
