The Hughes Estate was a moderate to large 18th-early 19th century sugar plantation located on the northern coast of Anguilla, B.W.I., between Lower South Hill and Long Bay Village. A current goal of the project is to learn about the lives of people of African descent who labored at Hughes Estate as bonded domestics, field laborers and wharfmen. Oral history and archaeological excavation can help us better know these histories that are difficult to tease out of the biased perspective offered in the colonial archives. This project is motivated by the belief that writing more inclusive stories of the past will help us better understand our present. Please Clickhere to learn more.
