A map showing the location of clay sources and selected archaeological sites in the Banda Traditional Area, Bono Region, Ghana. Many of these sources were used to mine clay for making pottery in centuries past. Noted in parentheses are the compositional groups to which clay sources have been assigned through Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis. Groups "L" and "H2" are located to the west of the prominent line of hills that bisect the region. Group "K2" pits are located to the east of these hills.
