Slave Ship Trouvadore – Special Events

2007 – 200th Anniversary of the End of British African Slave Trade
2007 will be the 200th anniversary of the end of Slavery in Britain, and British African Slave Trade.

To mark these historic landmarks in 2007 the Trouvadore Project will be presenting papers at a variety of conferences such as the Society of Historial Archeaeologists in January 2007, and the World Archaeological Congress in Jamaica in May 2007.

The Museum has also been invited to submit a paper on the Trouvadore story to appear in a special edition of the International Journal of Historical Archaeology. This edition will be concentrating on the archaeology of slave ships and will come out at the end of 2006 or beginning of 2007.
