Description:

Umbrella for two projects based at University College London tracing the impact of slave-ownership on the formation of modern Britain. Includes [especially in the notes fields] names of U.S. citizens who were awardees for the claims on the loss of slaves in British Territories.

At the core of the completed project is this online Encyclopaedia of British Slave-ownership containing information about every slave-owner in the British Caribbean, Mauritius or the Cape at the moment of abolition in 1833. Entries include information about the activities, affiliations and legacies of these men and women, with a particular emphasis on the "absentee" owners based in Britain.
