The 'Your Caribbean Heritage' project team are researching and cataloguing Colonial Office records relating to the British Caribbean. The three year project, financed by the Heritage Lottery Fund, is in its second year. The team has catalogued a wealth of interesting documents which will form the basis of a presentation and discussion looking at the identity of the Caribbean region. The event is open to anyone interested in Caribbean history, no previous knowledge of the subject is required.
The session, which runs from 2.30-4.30pm, will be opened by presentations from the 'Your Caribbean Heritage' project team and guest speaker Dr. Hassan Arero, Keeper of Anthropology at the Horniman Museum and Curator of the 'Amazon to Caribbean: Early Peoples of the Rainforests' exhibition. Aspects of Caribbean identity from pre-1500 CE through to the 19th century, will be explored through the themes of intra-island migration and trade. Documents from Grenada, Bermuda and Jamaica will be used to highlight the movement of people throughout the Caribbean region which have contributed to its multiple identities.
