About the maps:
The maps in this exhibition have been co-created as part of “Narrating the Diverse Past“, a joint University of Reading and British Museum partnership project led by Dr Amara Thornton.
The text was written by Amara Thornton, and the maps and illustrations have been created by Michelle Keeley-Adamson. They are based on historic sources and do not reflect Britain or Barbados today. The illustrations are copyright of Michelle Keeley-Adamson. Sources used for the text can be found in Further Reading.
