Parliament and the British Slave Trade 1600-1807   go to paper

David Prior, Parliamentary Archives, UK, United Kingdom

The year 2007 marked the 200th anniversary of the parliamentary abolition of the British slave trade. In order to provide on-line access to the wealth of material held by the UK Parliamentary Archives in London, a Web site was commissioned to enable users to interact with documents, works of art and museum artifacts, as well as to provide a legacy of an exhibition held at Westminster in the summer of 2007.
