Archaeology at Escape

As we noted earlier, the SVG Trust gave a special presentation on the 'Archaeological Impact Mitigation at Escape' by Dr. Richard Callaghan, Associate Professor (Caribbean Archaeology) Department of Archaeology, University of Calgary on Wednesday May 5th, 2010 in the Carnegie Building (Old Public Library).

The talk included a review of the work being done at the proposed site of the Arfyle International airport.

A mystery is the discovery of an architectural feature unique to Caribbean sites, a "long house" reminiscent of native american structures in Canada.

In the audience were a number of archeologists and students from Holland, working on another site in the Argyle area.
