International Garifuna Summit – Garifuna Exhibition

An exhibition focusing on the recent archaeological excavations and findings at Argyle will be staged here next month as part of the part of the International Garifuna Summit.

The Garifuna Heritage Foundation says Dr. Corrine Hofman and Dr. Jimmy Mans of Leiden University will be here to present the Vincentian public with a large-scale model of the early indigenous village excavated at Argyle.

The model has been crafted by Mr. Eric Pelissier and will be presented at the National Library at Kingstown, where it will become a permanent feature.

Mr. Pelissier’s model is based on drawings and photographs from the 2010 fieldwork at Argyle, and will be accompanied by five educational posters which help to explain the context of the early indigenous village,

The official opening of the exhibit will take place on Monday March 9th, beginning at 9am.
