Loropeni Overview

Outside the village of Loropeni, in the forest, are the mysterious Loropeni ruins, the remains of a large stone fortress.

Very little is known about the origin of the ruins. None of the people who live in the area right now use this kind of architecture, so it was probably built by a tribe who moved to Ghana. By the age of the treas they can tell it was deserted in the 19th century, and the oldest remains found here that could be carbon dated, date back to the 11th century, but the lower levels of soil have not yet been examined.
