HVVA February Study Tour
The title of the movie is, “The Sugar Connection, Holland-Barbados-Shelter Island.” Run time is 119 minutes. According to the jacket, it “is the first documentary to show the history of 17th century Long Island, N.Y. through the science of high-tech archeology and interviews with dozens of Dutch, English and American scholars.” It is based on a large-scale archeological excavation at Sylvester Manor, one of six 17th-century manors established on Long Island. “The excavated artifacts reveal how the Europeans, Native Americans and Africans lived together at Sylvester Manor producing provisions for their sugar plantations in Barbados. This film brings the fascinating unknown story of 17th-century Long Island and its role in global trade to the public for the first time. The film was provided to HVVA by Gaynell Stone, Ph.D., who directed it. It was produced by the Suffolk County Archeological Association. The event is hosted by trustee, Maggie MacDowell, please enter through the main door and you will be directed to the screening location.
