Atlantic Africa: from records to knowledge, 17th-19th centuries

The aim of the project is to reinforce the use of the archival heritage of the Overseas Historical Archive (AHU) regarding the dynamics of the Atlantic Africa from mid 17th century to ca. 1833 in a global context.

The archival research line of this project will be focused on the informatics cataloguing of the series related to Atlantic Africa. It envisages the web access to the resulting finding aids, in co connection to the on-going informatics platform and digital repository "Arquivo Científico Tropical Digital". Preservation concerns will also be taken into account.
