A Tropical Wave in the Atlantic World: The Comparative Colonial Caribbean Archaeology of Dr. Marley R. Brown III

Author(s): Frederick Smith

Year: 2015

Summary

Few historical archaeologists in the field today have escaped the influence, advice, and impact of Marley R. Brown III. His reach has extended to the tropical shores of the Caribbean, and his work, along with that of his students, has helped shape the direction of Caribbean historical archaeology. In Bermuda, Barbados, and the British Virgin Islands Marley has fostered a generation of students that have moved beyond site specific processes to embrace the big picture of British colonial and African diasporic trajectories in the Atlantic. As a graduate student, Marley encouraged me to pursue comparative colonial archaeological research in Barbados and supported me throughout that process. From my graduate studies to the initial archaeological steps in Barbados, Marley has guided my work. This paper is a testimony to his contributions to our field.
