Documents and Images

From time to time we will add documents to the site, such as images taken from the Slave Registers. For those which have been added so far go to document list of estates with associated images. We will also occasionally add documents (usually in pdf format) to supplement the database information, such as this inventory of the enslaved on a Barbados plantation in 1811. You can also read the testimony of Forster Clarke to a committee of the Council of Barbados, which produced a report in 1824 defending slavery and the treatment of the enslaved by planters: Clarke's testimony.
