The A to Z of Barbados Heritage
This third edition of the A to Z of Barbados Heritage covers almost every aspect of the island.
This third edition of the A to Z of Barbados Heritage covers almost every aspect of the island from its geological birth, its colonisation by the indigenous peoples of the Caribbean, the arrival of Europeans and Africans and their transformation of this rock to a modern-day nation state.
It is an encyclopaedic introduction to our rich cultural heritage, from the indigenous flora and fauna to the unique architecture and historic artefacts, the forgotten games and the ‘immortal’ traditions and cuisine; the national heroes and the sporting heroes. In short, as the late literary icon John Wickham wrote of the first edition, it is a cultural vocabulary of a ‘Singular Island’. It’s completely revised with 40 new entries and magnificent photos.
