Archaeologies of Slavery and Freedom in the Caribbean Exploring the Spaces in Between / edited by Lynsey A. Bates, John M. Chenoweth, and James A. Delle.
While the patterns of habitation and development are similar throughout the Caribbean, there was also a great deal of diversity. The authors in this volume use innovative techniques and perspectives to reveal the stories of places and times where the usual rules did not always apply.
