This paper explores what linguistic research can tell us about the earliest history of the Ga and the Dangme languages: how they came to develop as separate languages, and where their early speakers may have come from. Hypotheses proposed in earlier writings by this author are refined. In addition, linguistic evidence is applied to develop hypotheses about several aspects of Ga-Dangme culture in earliest times, in particular the major food plants, the counting system and the calendar.
