Parliament and the British Slave Trade 1600-1807:


Parliament and the British Slave Trade 1600-1807 is a website from the Parliamentary Archives marking the bicentenary of the abolition of Britain’s transatlantic slave trade. Produced by the 24 Hour Museum, the site enables the public to explore the relationship between Parliament and the slave trade, and invites comment and online debate. The website draws on and provides access to documents held by the Parliamentary Archives, including the Act of 1807 which abolished the trade, evidence taken by Parliamentary enquiries and petitions. In addition it features items from other institutions including Thomas Clarkson’s African box. Teachers can find ideas for lessons (KS3/KS4) and plenty of historical source material, as well as a community area for creating interactive lesson resources.
