    Of course most of us don’t know much about slavery. These sketches are from Livingstone’s “Narrative of an expedition to the Zambesi and its tributaries” at the time (1858) that England actively started to combat slavery – apparently on moral/ethical grounds. Contrary to the Dutch who abandoned slave trade as not cost-effective (!). Some estimate that the Dutch were responsible for about 5% of the Atlantic slave trade, mostly from Angola and Guinea. Mortality was high during this trade both of slaves and surprisingly also of the crew aboard (“Harde Heelmeesters, by Arnold leuftink).
