Barbuda Reports

The work in Barbuda started in 2000 by CUNY archaeologists and an international team of environmental researchers in collaboration with the Antigua & Barbuda scholars and agencies and by the invitation of Dr. Reg Murphy, head of archaeology for National Parks Antigua and Barbuda. Previous seasons have established rich cultural heritage sites with deep chronological stratigraphy. The project emphasis is on interdisciplinary, international collaboration of scientists, education and outreach.
