The dataset derives from the excavation and post-excavation of a freed slave (‘liberated African’) graveyard on the South Atlantic island of St Helena. The report for this site has been produced in two parts: a printed volume published by the Council for British Archaeology (Pearson et al. 2011); and a digital volume deposited with the Archaeological Data Service (ADS). Also held by ADS are supporting data: the primary site record and miscellaneous documents generated during the excavation and post-excavation stages of the project. Substantial further research will be undertaken on this project over the next three to five years. The intention is to expand the dataset as new information is generated.
