Ghana has a very rich cultural heritage comprising of several monuments, artefacts, historic and archaeological sites which can be studied, restored and developed for several purposes including Heritage preservation, education as well as Archaeo-tourism.
However, lack of scientific data in this regard tends to encourage unrestrained speculations, which largely accounts for some insupportable hypotheses put forward by many pioneer scholars concerning the nature of culture change in Ghana.
The aim of this work seeks to bring out the viability and potentialities of using integrated and simultaneous IBA techniques to investigate potshards recovered from some Archaeological sites to showcase the contributions that Accelerator IBA applications can be made in cultural heritage studies and Archaeo-Tourism development in Ghana.
