Thanks to The National Archives, Bath Abbey, Bath Preservation Trust and Bath Records Office have been awarded a grant to explore Bath’s links to the transatlantic slave trade and the history of a Black presence in the city by studying digital archives of the Bath Chronicle.

Six grants were awarded across the country with the theme of ‘addressing representation in archives’.
