The Director of Christiansborg Archaeological Heritage Project (CAHP), Professor Rachel Ama Asaa Engmann has said, the excavation of the Archeological artifacts at the Osu Castle would go a long way to boost Ghana’s tourism sector.
According to her, the ongoing excavation at the Osu Castle, would not only help to re-write a country’s history through the discovery of artifacts of the remains of early occupants but would in a way open the country to tourists to know the historical journey of Ghana with the Danish, the Europeans and the British during the pre and the post-slavery periods.
Speaking to Journalists at an archaeological excavation site at Christiansborg Castle, Prof Engmann said she hopes to have the artifacts discovered displayed at the museum as part of the government initiative to avert the castle into a museum to display and preserve the rich heritage of Ghana.
The Christiansborg archaeological heritage project, she said started in 2014 of which 180,000 artifacts discovered so far.
Some of the discoveries include smoking pipes, ceramics, bottles, hoes and some of which majority are imported objects.
