West Africa and the Atlantic World: Trade Goods of the Elmina Shipwreck
Author(s): Gregory Cook
This is an abstract from the "POSTER Session 3: Material Culture and Site Studies" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.
This poster will present details on some of the trade goods recovered from a seventeenth-century wreck site located off of Elmina, Ghana. This project, which involved archaeologists from Syracuse University and the University of West Florida, focused on completing the first maritime archaeological survey in coastal Ghana. The resulting discovery of a shipwreck loaded with trade items intended for the West African exchange provides a compelling look at the variety of goods involved with this commodity exchange.
