Abstract:This contribution presents a catalogue of material culture used in the Gold Coast before 1800, as it is represented in published written sources. It is a tool for those anthropologists, art historians and archaeologists who have an interest for objects and for their place in the society. The author points out the importance of available sources on this topic, which contrasts with their rather limited and often improper use. He suggests the geographic scope of this tool could be broadened. Bibliogr., notes, sum. in English and French, full text of the article on accompanying CD-ROM (AFRIKA CDR-68). [Journal abstract]
