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. Mona was the last sugar estate in the parish of St Andrew to go out of production, taking off its last crop in 1908. It is a history that has left many trails, only some of which we have fully explored.

HISTORY RENEWED

This month, February 2016, the UWI Mona Heritage Committee fulfilled a longstanding commitment to re-inter bones from burials disturbed in February 2012 during drainage work for a new Faculty of Medical Science building. No map had shown the location as being a burial ground and the origins of the bones is as yet unproved.
