    I've seen those pictures of the slaves "stored" on the ships - and they never fail to shock me. The Slavery Exhibition in the Maritime has similar pictures and there's a special area which is supposed to give you and idea of what it was like in the hold - I felt sick in there and disorientated, it was absolutely horrible.

    Great post Kev.

    Default Slave Trade

    Thanks very much for this input Kev. All quite fascinating. With regards to the 1767 advert for a slave in Liverpool, slavery in England was abolished in 1772 by the Lord Mansfield judgement. The slave trade was made illegal by 1807 and slavery in the colonies was banned by about 1838.

    It's interesting to see the items being loaded up for trade to the local African Kings in exchange for the slaves they had collected for sale to European slave traders including those from Liverpool.

    Attached is a photo of the gravestone of one of the slave traders mentioned in your images: Peter Whitfield Brancker. Gravestone at St James Cemetery, Liverpool

    I like that bit Taffy and I hope it means what I read into it and that is that although the authorities in Liverpool always sem to want to beat ourselves up over it, Those in power in Africa and the rest of Europe were at it too. Sorry if i'm wrong

    Ged, it was largely very much a slave trade. You can argue about the morality of the trade but slavery and trading had been going on for millennia across the world. A very good detailed book to read about the African/ European slave trade arrangements is that by Gomer Williams pub 1897 and reprinted 2004.

    Only last year I was attending a meeting where the speaker born in Nigeria started off by apologising for the role his black ancestors played in the slave trade. He was descended from one of the African slave trade Kings.

    Also on TV, last year was a programme about a black person whose ancestors had been taken into slavery from the Gold Coast region. He traced his roots back to a given village and asked the local Sheik why the Sheikh's ancestors had been involved in the slave trade. The answer was : It was nothing personal, just business.

    The docility myth created by the traders is misleading. Many Slaves tried to escape and rebellions took place. Ships were taken over by inmates and the plantations saw uprisings. The traders had to try and keep the slaves in place hence the harsh treatment.They also needed government back up which they got through representation in politics. Democracy!!

    I wonder if you've read Barry Unsworth's magnificent novel 'Sacred Hunger'? Published in 1992, it was joint winner of the Booker Prize.

    The plot revolves around a near-broke Liverpool merchant building and equiping a ship to take part in the slave trade to recover his fortune, and what happens to the ship, the crew and the slaves subsequently. It's opening descriptions of the shipyard, the merchant's home and other aspects of Liverpool are fascinating.

    A real page turner, it would make a cracking fim in my view.
