Description

For those able to visit much of the experience is still as it was during the slaving era. However, to understand the Castle's extraordinary history, the main travelling must always take place in the imagination. William St Clair tells the story of the Castle and of the people who spent part of their lives within its walls, men, women, and children, Europeans, Africans, free and enslaved. Drawing on many previously unpublished letters, accounts, and reports, he enables readers from many nations to appreciate its unique claim on the collective memory of the modern world.show more
