Post Saladoid

 

By 700 AD, the Saladoid people and culture was well established throughout the Lesser Antilles. As their population increased, they began to occupy more of the islands including the dryer limestone islands. By 900 AD, their sites on Antigua can best be described as coastalfishing villages, for they were positioned directly on the seafront in close proximity to rich marine resource zones, such as reefs, mangroves, and shellfish beds. These late period sites can be recognised by their large shell middens.
