iT IS A RECORD of the island’s built and natural heritage and a tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Barbados National Trust.
    This is how the new coffee table bookGuardians Of Our Heritage: 50 Years was heralded its launch at the trust’s Wildey House headquarters Monday. However, three of the five people behind the book see it as more than just a book.
    For president Dr Karl Watson, past president Senator Professor Henry Fraser and publisher Keith Miller, the book is a record of history, a teaching tool and timely, given the island’s inscription as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. “Barbados is now more ready for this book,” Fraser stressed.
    “The UNESCO World Heritage inscription of Historic Bridgetown And Its Garrison came a year ago and now people have begun to wake up,” he said.
