Exploring Slave Trade in Asia

937 statements

Slave trade has so far mainly focused on the Atlantic trade. For Asian trade voyages have been studied by looking at a journey as a place of departure and a final place of arrival. However, vessels made several stops creating 'subvoyages'. We use Linked Data to visualize and analyse the relations between voyages and subvoyages.
