A three dimensional scale model of an early indigenous village that was excavated at the Argyle Airport site is now on display at an exhibition at the National Public Library.

The exhibition is being hosted by the Garifuna Heritage Foundation as part of activities organized to coincide with the International Garifuna Summit and for National Heroes and Heritage month.

Speaking at the opening of the display on Monday Zoila-Ellis Browne, a member of the Garifuna Heritage Foundation said it is a very exciting time for the Foundation as it continues with its project seeks to find a home for Heritage exhibits.

Mrs. Ellis-Browne said students can visit the model to be inspired and learn more about their history and culture.
The large-scale model was officially handed over by Dr. Corrine Hoffman and Dr. Jimmy Mans of Leiden University

The model was crafted by Eric Pelissier and will be a permanent feature at the National Library in Kingstown.
