Antigua and Barbuda Explained

Antigua and Barbuda at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Island nation, Lesser Antilles. It consists of three islands, Antigua, Barbuda, and Redonda. Area: 171 sq mi (443 sq km). Population (1997 est.): 65,000. Capital: St. John's (on Antigua). The majority of the population are descendants of African slaves brought in during colonial times. Language: English (official). Religion: Christianity. Currency: Eastern Caribbean dollar. The largest of the islands is Antigua (108 sq mi, or 280 sq km). It lacks forests, mountains, and rivers, and is subject to droughts. The main anchorage is the deepwater harbor of St. John's. Barbuda, 25 mi (40 km) north of Antigua, is a 62-sq-mi (161-sq-km) game reserve inhabited by a variety of wildlife, incl. wild deer; its only settlement is Codrington, on its W coast. Redonda, an uninhabited rock (0.5 sq mi, or 1.3 sq km), lies southwest of Antigua. Tourism is the mainstay of the country's economy; offshore banking is growing. C. Columbus visited Antigua in 1493 and named it after a church in Seville, Spain. It was colonized by English settlers in 1632, who imported African slaves to grow tobacco and sugarcane. Barbuda was colonized by the English in 1678. In 1834 its slaves were emancipated. Antigua (with Barbuda) was part of the British colony of the Leeward Islands from 1871 until that colony was defederated in 1956. The islands achieved full independence in 1981.
