Ships of Slaves

by Thorkild Hansen

This is the second volume in the trilogy, The Ships of Slaves, which tells the story of the Danish/Norwegian participation in the transatlantic slave trade on the Gold Coast (now Ghana) to the West Indies. This volume narrates the middle passage of the slave trade, from the time the remadors at the beach east of Christiansborg coerced the slaves onto the boat. It details the journey the slaves underwent; the conditions in which they travelled, and resulting deaths along the way; and the auctions on St Thomas and St Croix in the West Indies.
