The British West Indies
Maps, manuscripts, printed books and newspapers form a new resource
genealogists will find indispensable.
Caribbean Views and Black Europeans are two new virtual exhibitions
created by writer and broadcaster Mike Phillips, that are available on the
British Library's website, www.bl.uk .
Following an invitation from the British Library to curate a virtual
exhibition on a topic of his choice, Mike Phillips selected maps,
manuscripts, printed books and newspapers relating to the British West
Indies from the Library's Collect Britain website. These items form the
basis for Caribbean Views and are accompanied by Mike's personal responses
and reflections that conjure up a vivid picture of life in the
English-speaking Caribbean during the 18th and early 19th centuries."
