This drawing of Santo Domingo's Fortifications is part of a series of drawings and maps of the island that are conserved in the General Indies Archive.

During the second half of the XVI century, the presence of English and French corsairs in Caribbean waters obliged the Spanish monarchy to get involved in an expensive fortification policy of the most important population. The city of Santo Domingo site Archbishopric and Audience was one of the worst defended situations that were worsened by the population decrease suffered by the island due to the measures taken to avoid smuggling and the obliged depopulation of all the population settled in the north. In 1606 the inhabitants of Santo Domingo had been reduced to 648 neighbours before, due to city lack of defenses, it had been transitorily occupied by the English.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
