Dr. Brinsley Samaroo – Recovering Tangible Heritage

On September 17, 2009, Professor Dr. Brinsley Samaroo, under the patronage of the University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT), held a lecture titled, “Recovering Tangible Heritage” at the National Library and Information System Authority (NALIS). This lecture was meant to be an eye-opener to students of history as well as Trinidadians and Tobagonians in general, who may not be aware of the significance of some recent historical sites. The aim, in addition to general edification, is the preservation of these sites for further excavation and exploration for generations to come. Dr. Hollis Liverpool, Calypsonian and Historian chairs the proceedings and provides further details about the lecture.
