This volume brings together new research on the archaeology of the colonial landscape of the Caribbean. It focusses on the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and on the British Caribbean: notably Bermuda, Jamaica, Florida, Barbados, Antigua, and especially St. Kitts and Nevis. Chapters cover a wide range of landscapes - domestic, military and industrial - and interests, including the archaeology and architecture of African-Caribbean slavery and emancipation, European settlements, sugar production, burial grounds, cartography, fortifications and trade.

ROGER LEECH, President of the Society for Post Medieval Archaeology from 1999-2002, was formerly Head of Archaeology for the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England and is now Visiting Professor in the Department of Archaeology at the University of Southampton.
