Map of Antigua, c. 1739

This map of Antigua, a British possession from 1632, shows plantations and mills as well as towns, churches and forts. The names of the landowners are indicated and, all over the island, English place names (Falmouth, for example) illustrate how the British attempted to mark their domination on the land.
