I’m a PhD student studying links between Ireland and the Caribbean between 1770 and 1830. During the course of my research, I’ve read a lot of books, and have discovered so many great digital resources. My aim is to share links and reviews to help you find resources, and profile the latest research on the history of  the Caribbean. My ideal reader is not necessarily an academic historian—I’d like to help anyone doing research on the Caribbean, for pleasure, work, or study, and that includes those of you reading up on the Caribbean before you go there on holiday!

Please do get in touch with comments, questions, suggestions or requests.
