WDP 6 (2010) Concludes

This year’s version of the Williamsburg Documentary Project officially ended about ten days ago. WDP 6’s fourteen students did some excellent work, gathered a lot of terrific materials, and produced several outstanding analyses of Williamsburg and its social and cultural history (and left a number of foundational provocations for future research).

We are constantly adding materials to the WDP archives–oral histories, documents, reports–and much of it can be found by following the “online archives” tab (or by going straight to William & Mary’s Swem Library dSpace).

Our blog will now get much quieter–but look for it to come back to life in January 2011, when WDP 7 will come into being.


The Williamsburg Documentary Project (WDP) strives to collect and preserve the rich past of Williamsburg, Virginia. By conducting oral history interviews, building physical and digital archives, and creating online exhibits, the WDP interprets Williamsburg’s recent past. The WDP works towards developing a better understanding of Williamsburg by bringing together individuals, local groups, Colonial Williamsburg, and the College of William & Mary.
