National Archives opens online exhibition about 300 years of Caribbean history

UK — March 9, 2007 — Caribbean Histories Revealed, a new online exhibition from The National Archives, went live this week. The exhibition traces the history of the British Caribbean through Colonial Office records from the 17th century to 1926. From maps and photographs, to letters and petitions, it brings to life over 300 years of life in the Caribbean.

The launch of this new resource marks the culmination of ‘Your Caribbean Heritage’, a three-year cataloguing project at The National Archives, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project has created 125,000 new online record descriptions relating to the Caribbean, making the documents more easily accessible to a wider audience through The National Archives´ Catalogue. for more click here
