Archaeological Vacations in the Caribbean

Archaeology enthusiasts and students with a flare for 18th Century colonial history who wouldn't mind a taste of island life in the Caribbean will get the ideal opportunity on the island of St. Eustatius. Every year from January through August, archaeological research and excavations are conducted under programs administered by the College of William and Mary (USA), Leiden University (the Netherlands), and the University College London (UK). The programs involve excavation, artifact processing, and periodic evening lectures on archaeological topics. In addition, participants have the opportunity to enjoy the local culture and food, the national parks which include a rainforest at the Quill volcano, and, of course, diving and snorkeling.

St. Eustatius was a major transshipment center serving Europe, the Americas and the West Indies between 1770 and 1800. During the Revolutionary War, France and Holland provided arms to U.S. forces fighting the British through this port. It is regarded as having an abundance of colonial period sites. If you are interested in this opportunity, go to the website for more information.
