Curators from Barbados Museum Talk on “A Brief Federation”. It costs bds $50 for BARP members or anyone signing up to help Maaike ($70 otherwise). The beautiful grounds and plantation house at Golden Grove will be open for view.
Maaike de Waal, an archaeologist from Leiden University in the Netherlands, will still be at Golden Grove. She is a specialist in prehistoric, or “Amerindian”, settlements in the Caribbean. Her core team will include her husband and young children, three overseas and Barbados students.
The site studied will be Three Houses in St Philip. Previous work by Peter Drewett, who wrote extensively on archaeology in Barbados, identified Three Houses as one of the few inland Amerindian settlements, favoured by its natural drinking water.
