Garifuna Heritage Foundation Archaeological Exhibition

An Exhibition focusing on the recent archaeological excavation and findings at Argyle will be staged here from today, as part of the International Garifuna Summit, to be hosted this week by the Garifuna Heritage Foundation.

Two officials from Leiden University in the Netherlands are now in the state for Summit, which is being hosted by the Garifuna Heritage Foundation.

According to the Foundation, Dr. Corrine Hofman and Dr. Jimmy Mans of Leiden University will 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 at the National Public Library in Kingstown from nine this morning.
