The jungle around what is probably the enslaved laborer village at Sugar Loaf needed to be cleaned up before doing some GPR survey. The less space between the antenna and the ground, the better reading we get. Brian and Doug got to work clearing the leaf litter and marking out the grid with flags.
After the GPR survey , we walked around the ruins of the plantation. We looked at the great house, at the top of the hill. Mark found some cocoa fruits for us to suck on as we walked around. At the bottom of the hill, we saw the massive sugar works where the cane was crushed, and boiled to make sugar and molasses. The gear Mark is pointing to was turned by a water wheel.
