I'm a great fan of a UK television show called Time Team which I could never get here in Bermuda but some kind soul has uploaded all the episodes to Youtube and I'm currently hooked on watching them. Tonight I came across an episode (actually two episodes) where Time Team went on an archaeological dig in Nevis! So I had to watch it and it centres around the plantation of the Pinney family. If anyone is interested in watching the first episode here it is - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KT8-p1qxSjQ
I can give you episode 2 if there is interest. The show is full of British eccentrics but very informative!
