WELCOME TO THE ARCHAEOLOGY OF THE CIRCUM-CARIBBEAN DISCUSSION GROUP

The purpose of this forum is provide a place for archaeologists, historians, indigenous groups and other interested people to share ideas and information about the Caribbean's past. Further, we need not limit ourselves to exchanges of references and data. I hope that this space will also serve as a venue for voicing perspectives on the practice of contributing to and creating histories of the region--a process we are all engaged in.

In reading the past comments on this forum, I was intrigued by Samuel Rafinesque and looked to see if any of his works on the Taino language were online. What luck!-- go to

http://books.google.com/books?id=XYlHAAAAIAAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=inauthor:%22Constantine+Samuel+Rafinesque%22&lr=#PPA233,M1

and on page 162 there are the "poetical annals and traditions and on page 215 you will find his work on the Haytian language. This is a downloadable book from Google.

There is also an ongoing exhibit at the Library of Congress with a wooden dujo and manuscripts from the colonial period in Mexico.

Today I went to the Natural History Museum in Gainesville Florida.

All very amazing and the treat of the day was walking through their butterfly garden. Amazing little flying flowers, we were in awe with the beauty of it all.

What does different native cultures say about butterflies?

Tomorrow (Saturday) I am doing a book signing at
Books Inc. If anybody is around, stop by and say
"hi'. (12-2pm)

Hi Josh, excellent idea this group for the Caribbean archaeologists. Best regards!!
Comment by Joshua M. Torres on July 31, 2008 at 1:20pm
Hi Ray, I would like to come to the book fair. I am in Gainesville..Where is it exactly. Perhaps you can email me the address. Also, myself and several of my colleagues are currently working on some of these connections. Privided I can come to the book fair, perhaps we can meet and discuss it. Also, we can tal about museums that house Caribbean Collections...Puerto Rico has several, the Dominican republic has a large one also. There is also a nice museum in Tobago....
Comment by Ray Osborne on July 30, 2008 at 11:57am
Hello, I am looking for museums that have exhibits of Caribbean archaeological artifacts, especially ceramics.
I thought UF in Gainesville had one but talked to the curator and heard they had a collection but not an exhibit. Also there is a Museum in Aruba but that is closed now for repairs. Anybody make a suggestions?

I like comparing Florida and Caribbean archeology.

I'm presenting my new book at the Florida Voices book
fair in Gainesville on the 15th and plan to visit the Natural History museum. If anybody can give me any advice I would appreciate it.

Hi Allistair, I hope you are well. I will check on this for you in a couple of weeks when I get back to campus at UF. Iam pretty sure they have a copy in the Special Collections LIbrary. Best--Josh

This group is a great idea. For those of us who are not archaeologists, such as myself, it would be great to get "news", even if a brief couple of sentences, of what some new finds are, changing interpretations, new data, etc., even if on an irregular basis. I have always been fascinated by the archaeological research that has been done, and it has been invaluable and of enduring interest to a great many people, both academic and not, both indigenous and not.
