Show Notes

Buckle up! This week we look at an early 19th century military buckle from the Cabrits on Dominica, AKA the Gibraltar of the Caribbean, the Unfortunate Garrison or the Black Garrison. Why was this fortress known by the latter name? And why was an ornament of the West India Regiment left in a wattle and daub structure in the vicinity of this mighty fortress, together with a needle, glass bottles, French crockery and some other assorted finds? Fortunately, Alice and Angus are joined by Zachary Beier who found this object and the answers to our questions. Want to learn something about the surprising military and social history this object was witness to? Listen to this week’s episode of A History of the Caribbean in 100 Objects!

To look at while you listen to us:

More information:

  • The importance of the Cabrits for Dominica’s national identity and how it was recently restored, by Dr. Lennox Honychurch.
  • An overview of the excavations by Dr. Mark Hauser at Sugarloaf (plantation also mentioned by Zach in this episode)
  • The page by the Dominican tourist board on the Cabrits. There isn’t much info there, so if you are interested in going there, why not have a look at Tripadvisor too?
  • If this was interesting to you, why not listen to our episode with Todd Ahlmann on a coin he found from the same time period in St. Kitts. We briefly talk about Brimstone Hill and discuss enslaved life as it was outside of the military.
