Students will have a full excavation experience working at one or both sites, gaining practical hands-on experience in professional field excavation of a slave village at Betty’s Hope and learning current field methodologies in bioarchaeology at the nearby beach site.

Caribbean - British Virgin Islands - Kingstown Field School - 2016

Deadline
2016-06-01

This unique field school opportunity located in the Caribeean will investigate the events of Free African Communities and the lives of the African-descended peoples of the British Virgin Islands. Even after the 1838 emancipation in the British colonies, former slaves faced incredible obstacles. Many of these stemming from race-based legal restrictions aimed at keeping the economic and political slavery-era status quo intact. All of these contexts were important for the cultural life of the Caribbean, but they have received little study by historical archaeologists, who have tended to focus on large sugar plantations. The goal and responsibility of this field school is to give voice to their story and highlight their contributions to BVI and Caribbean society which were silenced by history.
