AIA Site Preservation Projects

Carr Plantation, Montserrat

The Carr Plantation Archaeology and Heritage Project at Little Bay, directed by Jessica Striebel MacLean of Boston University, combines aspects of site preservation with education and outreach activities to protect this 17th century European heritage site from urban development. One of the few sites left on the island of Montserrat that date to this period, Carr Plantation’s continuous occupation allows researchers the unique opportunity to understand the nature of European occupation of Montserrat from initial settlement through to the present. By involving students from local schools, the Project hopes to promote a history for local inhabitants that they be proud of and protect for future generations.
