This catalogue draws together the British Museum’s collection of 220 pieces of gold regalia from the West African state of Asante in modern-day Ghana. The publication includes a wide range of artefacts such as amulets, soul disc pendants, swords and head-dresses and draws on current research to contextualise and interpret them.

Entries are generated directly from our collection database and might change as Museum curators discover more about the objects. This format aims to provide a 'living' catalogue so its contents can be adapted to reflect current research.
