The period between the conquest of Ahafo lands by the Asante warriors in the early eighteenth century and the mid–twentieth century has not had any serious and detailed historical studies. Therefore, Ahafo still awaits an in–depth and serious historical investigation.The purpose of writing this book is to examine the history of Ahafo from the earliest times to the creation of the Brong–Ahafo Region in 1959. Issues discussed in this work include the Abirimoro war, the subsequent establishment of the Ahafo settlements as Asante dependencies, the places of origin of the Ahafo people, their overlords and the landlords from whom permission was sought for the settlement, the functions of the dependencies, how they were governed, the involvement of the Ahafo in civil wars in Asante, Anglo–Ahafo relations and the British provision of a freedom charter to Ahafo, the autonomy of Ahafo division and the restoration of Asante Confederacy. It is my hope that this book will enable Ghanaians, particularly non historians, to appreciate the problem between some members of the Brong-Ahafo Regional House of Chiefs and the Asantehene over the latter’s claim of lordship over Ahafo in recent years.
