Description: The Asante Traditional Buildings (north-east of Kumasi) are the last material remains of the great Asante civilization that reached its apogee in the 18th century. The dwellings, being made of earth, wood and straw, are susceptible to the onslaught of time and weather. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
