Reminder: H-Slavery's Topical Guides

Dear Subscribers, 

This is just a quick reminder as we approach the winter break that H-Slavery maintains a series of Topical Guides, described here: Scholars interested in writing a guide are welcome to reach out to me. Between being circulated to our 3,000+ subscribers and being published online on an open-access model, they find a wide readership.  

Best wishes, 

Runaway Slaves in britain

The ‘Runaway Slaves in Britain’ project webpages and database launches on 1 June 2018. Funded by the Leverhulme Trust, the research project team have combed through English and Scottish newspapers published between 1700 and 1780 (many of which can’t be digitally searched), locating newspaper notices for enslaved and bound people who escaped in Britain, as well as notices advertising the sale of enslaved people.
