A look inside the Saba Archaeological Center

Leiden University has conducted archaeological field research on Saba since 1987. These projects have been led by Prof. dr. Corinne Hofman, Dr. Menno Hoogland, and Dr. Ryan Espersen. Currently, the Saba Heritage Center temporarily showcases a collection of finds from these projects as part of the display of the island's long heritage.
