The Bath and Colonialism Archive Project


Find out how colonialism and the Transatlantic Slave Trade was reported on and represented in Georgian Bath.

The Bath & Colonialism Archive Project aims to share information on the City of Bath’s links to the transatlantic slave trade through the Georgian copies of the Bath Chronicle Newspaper 1760-1780.

The Bath & Colonialism Archive Project has created supporting information on writing descriptions of archives when the original material contains racist language and some distressing content, using articles from the Georgian Bath Chronicle as case studies.

The project has been funded by The National Archives Testbed Fund
