Astro Zombie for the win. This is a great post, and I am going to assign that last link to my online Colonial History course right now.

And now Port Royal is one of the greatest bands to ever grace the planet. Gotta love yourself some Italian post-rock.

Astro Zombie: I grew up 4 years in Jamaica, never really studied the history of the place. Thank you so much for this interesting and informative post.
