The Fort Charles Archaeological Project (FCAP) is a multi-year project exploring one of the earliest British forts in the Caribbean. The site is home to an early 17th century fort built shortly after the settlement of Nevis in 1628. Our work seeks to understand the changing nature of Caribbean society for more than two and a half centuries. In many ways, forts acted as points of contact between islands and the broader world. This is especially true at multipurpose sites like Fort Charles, which served as a customs fort for at least part of its occupation. You can learn more about this exciting project at the FCAP Website.
