One thought on “Lecture Series on International Relations in the Caribbean

  1. In 1979 I found (in the gravel of the River Tweed between England and Scotland) an antique belt buckle now dated to about 1780 and showing a slave cricketer playing the ancient game in Barbados in that year. I would hope that apart from all other cultural connections in the Caribbean Basin and wider, from Arctic Canada down to Tierra del Fuego perhaps, might enjoy and employ all kinds of sport. The young portraited man on the buckle is known to be the earliest secular player of Sport in the New World and anything like such a connection as this being discovered linking throughout the New World seems too good to be missed. I am keen to see cricket enlarged, I’m mad about the sport, but pretty much anything goes. There is a telling of some of the buckle’s story on Wikipedia under THE BARBADOS CRICKET BUCKLE. Thinking caps on folks?
