Fig Tree News TeamFYI: A great resource for all.

Caribbean Histories Revealed, a new online exhibition from The National
Archives, launched on Tuesday 6 March. 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.

The online exhibition gives a historical overview of the Caribbean through a
series of topics including:
the transatlantic slave trade
struggles against slavery and colonialism
everyday life
political conflicts
the role of West Indian soldiers in the First World War.

These topics are discussed under six themes, each illustrated by documents
carefully selected among the vast amount of newly catalogued records.
