The following web site explores Slavery in Eighteen Century England. We focus specifically on the history and purpose of slavery, the early relationships between Africa and England, the Middle passage, the Zong Ship, the profitability of slavery, the Mansfield Case and finally concluding with the Anit-Slavery Movement. We also have provided a library of links and sources for those who want to do more research on this topic. This web site is a project of an English class focusing on 18th century England taught at The University of Michigan. The motivation behind doing this project was to educate ourselves and others of the institution of slavery in England.
