Textbook – Bristol and Transatlantic Slavery: origins, impact, legacy

We worked with local secondary history teachers to produce a new textbook suitable for KS3+. Although it has a particular focus on Bristol, this book is filled with the stories of people involved in transatlantic slavery from all over the world. It is ideal for use in the classroom or for anybody who is interested in knowing more about this fascinating and important topic.

Individual copies can be purchased from the museum shop. Schools and colleges can buy multiple copies at a discounted rate, please contact us for details.
