Legacies of the Slave Trade
Legacies of British slave ownership
Legacies of British Slave-Ownership is the umbrella for two projects based at University College London (UCL):
- The Legacies of British Slave-Ownership
- The Structure and Significance of British Caribbean Slave-Ownership 1763 to 1833.
UCL has produced a searchable and freely accessible database of all slave-owners in the British Caribbean at the time slavery ended. The starting point for this work was the records of the Slave Compensation Commission, which distributed the compensation to slave-owners.
