Sights of Africa They Never Show on Tv

Kintampo Falls, Ghana

The Kintampo archeological site in Ghana dates back to 2500-1400 BCE and is one of the earliest known sites for the cultivation of the cowpea. Evidence of polished stone axes, stone beads, buildings of stone, domestic pots, ceramic sculptures of humans and animals indicate that Kintampo was established by practitioners of both pastoralism and horticulture.

The Kintampo people lived in villages composed of rectangular wattle and daub structures (the historical shape and material of Akan buildings) at Netereso, overlooking the White Volta, 50 km west of Tamale, in a settlement covering about 750 square metres.
