Abstract

In comparison with research on plantation sites related in the foregoing chapters, archaeological projects within urban environments in the Caribbean have tended to be more limited and for the most part have mainly taken the form of rescue excava- tions. In this chapter three writers from very different intellectual and methodological backgrounds bring together the work they have been undertaking at Speightstown (St Peter Parish) over the last ten years. Drawing together oral and documentary history, archaeological excavation, maritime archaeology and survey and buildings recording we present a biography of social and cultural change in a small Barbadian urban setting over a three-hundred-year period.
