Sampling Many Pots: An Archaeology of Memory and Tradition at a Bahamian Plantation

VIEWS: 3 PAGES: 3

Color patterns and motifs distinguished both the village ceramics from the planter's assemblage, and the household assemblages from each other, providing "another outlet for creative and individualized expression" which Wilkie and Farnsworth (2005:290-291) see as a characteristic of African diaspora cultures. (On the other hand, their repeated amusement at the reactions of their students and tourists to Bahamian foods and culture becomes a little bit annoying in its smugness.) This book is an excellent addition to the growing body of literature on Caribbean archaeology, detailed in presentation, comparative in scope, and well worth the attention of any scholar interested in the richness of culture that was created through the African diaspora.
