History

The island was deserted when it was first found by European privateers and fishermen. Anguilla was first colonised by British and Irish settlers in 1650 and in 1958 joined a federation with St Kitts and Nevis. In the 1960s the people of Anguilla became dissatisfied with the federation and after the revolution of 1967 Anguilla became a British Territory. In 1980 Anguilla became a separate British Dependent Territory. Anguilla is an associate member of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS).
