The Archaeology of Slavery online resource | is now live on the International Slavery Museum website. This is a first-of-its-ind collection of searchable archaeological and historical data from multiple slave village sites in the Caribbean, related to the experiences of the enslaved men and women who laboured on sugar plantations.

The resource is the result of the St Kitts-Nevis Digital Archaeology Initiative, | an innovative collaborative project in a partnership with the University of Southampton and the Digital Archaeological Archive of Comparative Slavery. |

The project involved an international team of scholars from The Digital Archaeological Archive of Comparative Slavery at the Thomas Jefferson Foundation in Charlottesville, Virginia, the University of Southampton’s Nevis Heritage Project | and the International Slavery Museum | in Liverpool
