New Publication – Of Halls, Hills and Holes

By BMHS on June 5, 2017 in News Releases
Of Halls, Hills and Holes: Place Names of Barbados

On sale at the Museum Shop from Thursday , 08 June 2017 for only $100.00.

This book was started some ten years ago as a small research project which would essentially combine Ronnie Hughes’s
interest in the history of plantations with Woodville Marshall’s interest in the history of the origins of villages. Over time,
however, both the scope of the book and the number of collaborators were widened; and the end-product
accomplishes a number of larger objectives.

The authors, by explaining the origins of roughly two thousand place names, have provided Barbadians with brief
but reliable information about their places of birth and residence, have provided to both residents and visitors some
snippets of information about familiar and not so familiar places and, as a result, they have ensured that all readers
can absorb some information about a variety of social and economic processes and institutions.

Retail Price – $100.00 per publication

Books will be available for collection from the Barbados Museum & Historical Society from 8 June 2017.
