Bristol’s role in the African slave trade of the eighteenth century is widely recognised.  Less well known is how, in the previous century, the city’s merchants met the demand for labour in Britain’s new colonies with a supply of indentured white servants.

Bristol’s White Slave Trade reveals the extent of this form of slavery and the city’s part in it.
