Welcome to the Bermuda project blog for 2006. This page is initially intended for use by participants in the project, but later on as a wider platform for dissemination of our results.

The fieldwork element of the project will take place from 3rd to 13th April 2006. There are three main aims for fieldwork and research...

1. Excavation at Verdmont House - looking for evidence of the slave quarters
2. Survey of historic shipyards - industrial and maritime archaeology
3. Excavation at Government House - exploring an upper class rubbish heap!

The project is jointly run by the Bermuda National Trust and Ironbridge Archaeology. We are recieving academic and technical support from the University of Bristol (UK) and Wilfrid Laurier University (Canada).

More information will be posted here shortly.
