Abstract

This article is based on the first archaeological study to reconnect landscapes
in the United Kingdom and Caribbean as legacies of a single landowning
family: the Lascelles of Harewood House in West Yorkshire, England. It
seeks to trace the lines of modernity across the Atlantic and to understand
relationships on two sides of the trans-Atlantic trade. It employs multi-scalar
and multi-sited archaeology to suggest how analysis can combine a local
empiricism and a global context to offer a distinctive perspective. Although
the artifacts recovered in each location are very different in terms of date,
context, use, and deposition, their relational nature and connections make
their meanings interdependent. The fieldwork in Barbados was supported by
a British Academy Small Grant (R1357801). Research into the Harewood
estate landscape was supported by an AHRC CDA with the Harewood
House Trust.
