Class Trip To Maroon Town in Jamaica

Travel with me ideep into the cockpit country, Jamaicas largest remaining contiguous rainforest, to uncover the mysteries of Nanny and the maroons among the mountains, caves, and maroon communities still in existence today. These difficult territories were strategically selected by maroons, who had escaped from plantations, for its natural defences and to launch their attacks on Spaniard or British colonists.  The maroons later used these territories to develop communities outside the control of colonizers.
