(p.3) 1 Introduction
An Archaeology and History of a Caribbean Sugar Plantation on Antigua

Georgia L. Fox

University Press of Florida

Chapter 1 introduces the reader to the volume’s organization, and current background literature on plantation archaeology in Caribbean historical archaeology as it pertains to the study site, Betty’s Hope plantation. One theoretical perspective in examining life at Betty’s Hope is through Entanglement Theory, although it is not the only theoretical perspective discussed in the volume. The Betty’s Hope project is partially aided by the Codrington Papers archive housed in the National Archives of Antigua and Barbuda. The archive is then compared to the archaeological discoveries made at Betty’s Hope from 2007 to 2015, yielding rich comparative data from one site. The volume is not limited to site-specific information but also incorporates Betty’s Hope in the broader scheme of the Caribbean regional developments.

Keywords:   Antigua, Betty’s Hope, Caribbean, Codrington Papers, Entanglement Theory, historical archaeology, plantation archaeology
