Interview with professor Wellington in his garden
I met Henry Wellington, a now retired professor of archaeology from the University of Ghana, at his home on the outskirts of Accra. Here I interviewed him about his docu-fiction, Stones Tell Stories at Osu – Memories of a Host Community of the Danish Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.
In his book about the Danish influence in Osu stories are told from a local perspective and with an emphasis on oral history as he remembers it from his childhood and through the stories he was able to collect for the book project.
