The St Kitts- Nevis Digital Archaeological Initiative
The projects aims
Sponsored by The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) this is a collaboration between
- The Digital Archaeological Archive of Comparative Slavery at the Thomas Jefferson Foundation in Charlottesville, Virginia
- the University of Southampton's Nevis Heritage Project
- the International Slavery Museum in Liverpool
The initiative has developed an integrated digital archive of archaeological and historical data related to the experiences of the enslaved men and women who laboured on 17th, 18th and 19th century sugar plantations in the Caribbean.
Anyone with an interest in the subject can access the digital archive created as a result of this project for free. We hope that this will be a valuable resource for archaeologists, historians, other scholars, school children, teachers, and the public.
