Video: SECAR explains archaeology and why it is important for Statia
A part of the former Golden Rock Plantation (on the grounds of the airport) is currently being excavated due to the expectation of finding a pre-historic settlement next to the former enslaved persons quarters of the Golden Rock Plantation.
This excavation is being called GR2021 for short. Initial removal of topsoil is going on and has already uncovered some interesting features. SECAR is keen to educate Statians on what archaeology is and why it is so important for our island.
