HISTORY & ARCHAEOLOGY AT MONA

The Mona campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI) draws its name from the old Mona sugar estate on which it is set.

SEASONS GREETINGS – Video greeting from the UWI Museum

This is a season of celebration and renewal.
In our last post we shared the process of tuning the steelpan which is one of the artifacts in our museum, a connection to aspects of the history and heritage of the University of the West Indies and of the region it serves, and a recent example of one of Trinidad & Tobago’s gifts to the world.
This week we share a snippet of Christmas music played on the same pan.
