Overseas Team doing archealogical work at Fort Charles

 

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): A team from the Monmouth University in New Jersey are in Nevis exploring Fort Charles and are set to make proposals to the Nevis Island Administration and the Ministry of tourism on how to preserve the site. Dr. Edward Gonzalez Tennant, Assistant Professor in Anthropology at Monmouth University is in Nevis with students from the university, conducting exploration works. He told WINN the site is very important to Nevis but a large portion of it is being lost to erosion. “Its unique in regards to its central place in history but is also important to start doing research because…a large potion of it is being lost to erosion,” Dr. Gonzalez-Tennant said. 

He said proposals will be made to the Ministry of Tourism and the Nevis government on the importance of preserving artefacts found at the site. “There are an number of canons at the site, some of which date to the late 1700 so we are interested in writing a plan to the Ministry of Tourism and the islands’ administration in general in regards to preserving and properly maintaining and protecting those artefacts,” the professors said. Meanwhile, the anthropology professor plans to do follow up work at Fort Charles for the next few years.
