‘When I consider the magnitude of the subject which I am to bring before the House, a subject, in which the interests, not of this country, nor of Europe alone, but of the whole world, and of posterity, are involved...it is impossible for me not to feel both terrified and concerned at my own inadequacy to such a task.’
- William Wilberforce MP, House of Commons, 12 May, 1789

This is certainly a fascinating period to render into fiction, but it is always a sombre visit to the Slavery Museum.

🐚 ‘Cowrie shells originally came from the Maldives in the Indian Ocean. They were used as currency in many areas of West Africa. Olaudah Equiano (a slave in the 1700s) told of being sold for 172 cowrie shells. They were also used as decoration on precious objects in Africa to denote wealth and position.’ International Slavery Museum, Liverpool, UK. #historynottaughtinschool #hairdecoration #beadsandbraids #cowrieshells #cowrieshelljewellery #hairhistory
