Christianborg Archaeological Heritage Project (CAHP)

Welcome to the Christianborg Archaeological Heritage Project (CAHP), a study of Christiansborg Castle (today, known as Osu Castle), one of Ghana’s most important heritage sites. Over the years, Christiansborg Castle has servved several important functions: a trading enrepot during the trans-Atlantic slave trade, the seat of colonial government administration, and laterly, the Office of the President of the Republic of Ghana.

Today, ‘The Castle’, as it is locally known, is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The Christiansborg Archaeological Heritage Project is a community-based project. Since 2014 a team of Ghanaian researchers, including Osu community members, professors and students, has worked together to learn more about the history of the castle, particularly the people who lived and worked there.
