Bricks and Stones from the Past by Anthony R.D. Porter

Book Description

"Bricks and Stones from the Past" is an informative, handsomely illustrated and skilfully written book of hard facts about Jamaica's rich geo-historical heritage. Weaving his way through many intricate branches of knowledge, including archaeology, building construction, chemistry and geology, the author embarks on a journey that takes him through the pages of history and across the island. He examines, analyses and describes the nature and origin and use of various lithic materials and objects, many of which played an important role in the development of the island up to the early part of the twentieth century. With a thorough glossary to assist readers in understanding many of the technical terms, the author records his observations and findings in seven easy-to-read and understand chapters. The numerous illustrations of assorted artefacts and ruins should prove of immense value to collectors, museums, libraries, researchers and schools. This much-needed, pioneering reference is an essential addition to the literature on Jamaica.
