Caribbean Histories Revealed

This new website launched by the National Archives traces the history of the British Caribbean through Colonial Office records from the 17th century to 1926. It uses a range of documents including maps, photographs, letters and petitions and gives a historical overview of the region through a series of topics such as the transatlantic slave trade, struggles against slavery and colonialism, everyday life, political conflicts and the role of West Indian soldiers in the First World War.
