Description

Slavery was illegal in Britain, but the transatlantic slave trade left a physical mark on the UK. There are monuments to philanthropists who made their wealth through slavery, there were houses built from the profits made from slavery, and enslaved labour was used to produce items such as sugar and cotton. Many city landscapes bear the names of those involved or who profited. This book will tell the story of the legacy of the transatlantic slave trade on Britain.

Author Nigel Sadler challenges misconceptions of the built British landscape and shows how profits from slavery went into the construction of many iconic buildings. He also explores how freed enslaved Africans left their mark on Britain and how those who opposed slavery, and those in favour of maintaining slavery, are represented in the statues throughout the country.

Standard UK delivery is by Royal Mail and costs £3.50 but may be more for heavier parcels. Most items take between 1 and 5 working days to be delivered.

We use Royal Mail's airmail service to post overseas. This can take from 3 days to 10 days and costs from £5.00 in Europe and £6.50 for the rest of the world. As with UK delivery, this may be more for heavier parcels.

There is a surface mail service for international (not European) deliveries, which can be up to 50% cheaper than by air but takes much longer, possibly 6 to 8 weeks. Please email your proposed order for a surface mail price.

If you would like to order a large number of items, it may be worth contacting us directly to enquire about shipping costs.
