The University of Cambridge research project “No dollar too dark: free trade, piracy, privateering and illegal slave trading in the northeast Caribbean, early 19th century” will investigate illicit trade between the Caribbean islands St. Eustatius, Saba, St. Thomas, St. Bartholomew and St. Maarten from 1816 to around 1840 with the aim of understanding why and how these islands were drawn into an illicit trade network with pirates and the merchant houses who sponsored them, what archaeological evidence remains of these activities, and why this is relevant to current ‘theories of piracy’ and modern-day illicit trade in the region.
