Foodways, Life, and Archaeology

To publish in local magazines where we do archaeology is a dream and should be a requirement of repatriating knowledge. Repatriation is the return of cultural heritage to its country of origin. However, besides repatriating artifacts, we must view knowledge generated by international archaeologists as possible cultural heritage, which also must be freely accessible and available to interested people from the countries where the archaeological fieldwork took place.

The short popular magazine article I authored highlights some special finds from archaeobotanical work on Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands.

There was the discovery of an ancient energy drink.

A chocolate alcoholic beverage.

There is a lot of information that has been generated and is openly accessible in our academic articles, but this one was geared more towards the general public. I hope you enjoy reading it here.

As always, a big thank you to all the student participants that made this research possible and our local colleagues in the Turks & Caicos who have always been a big inspiration and help to the multiple projects!
