Camerhogne: Grenada’s Pre-Columbian Heritage is the next topic of the Grenada National Museum Lecture Series.
At the time of the first French settlement at Port Louis/Fort Annunciation in 1649, there were reportedly 2 groups of Amerindians present in Grenada: the “Cairibe” and the “Galibis.” Who were they, where did they come from, and when did they first arrive?
Drawing on 5 decades of archaeological research in Grenada, Jonathan Hanna’s research weaves together a new synthesis of the 84 pre-Columbian sites in Grenada and what they can tell us about the prehistoric Caribbean. In the process, we will overturn many age-old assumptions and learn new insights into how Grenada’s archaeological heritage is not just valuable to academic researchers but also to local communities.
This public lecture on Grenada’s Pre-Columbian Heritage by Jonathan Hanna, PhD Candidate in Anthropology, Penn State University, will be on Thursday, 22 June 2017 from 5:15 to 7 pm, at the Grenada National Museum, corner Young Street and Monckton Street, Saint George’s.
The event will change your perspective on some familiar stories and offer new ones emerging from the cutting edge of archaeological research. More information contact 440 3725.
