Chronology Writers Wanted

11 March 2016

Adam Matthew Digital, a publisher of primary source collections will be releasing a collection of documents online under the title Frontier Life, Borderlands, Settlement & Colonial Encounters later this year. The documents within aim to shed light on some of the Anglophone settler/colonial frontiers in North America, southern Africa and Australasia and will be used by scholars and students in their research. The dates of the documents range from 1650-1920.

Find out more about the work we do at www.amdigital.co.uk and more about this project at www.amdigital.co.uk/m-collections/collection/frontier-life/ or see the information below.

We are looking to accompany and contextualise the documents with an interactive chronology hence are looking for those with a knowledge of these regions and the theme to write timelines.

So if you have an interest and knowledge of colonial, frontier or settler history and feel able to write a set of chronology entries for any of the regions below, please get in touch.

North America
Africa
Australia & New Zealand


There is a fee available for the writing of each timeline. We envisage this to be roughly a day’s work in terms of writing and research.

If you’re interested and would like more information about any of the above, please contact Felix Barnes at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with a few sentences on your credentials by 28 March.
