    Memory and History in South Eleuthera: A Report to the People of South Eleuthera
    (2018-01-01) Sesma, Elena
    Over the past 5 years, archaeologists from the University of Massachusetts Amherst have made several short-term trips to South Eleuthera to research the history of this portion of the island. Our main interests have been in understanding how the landscape has changed over the past 150 years, and especially in the past few decades as tourism has fallen off in the south. Through a combination of ethnographic research and pedestrian survey of the South Eleuthera landscape, we have gained a clearer understanding of the history of this region, and of contemporary life today. This report offers a summary of findings in response to our research questions on memory, history, and landscape in South Eleuthera, as well as some suggested next steps in studying the cultural resources of the region.
