Chapter in new book ‘Slavery and the British Country House’

Proud to see this book arrive, ‘Slavery and the British Country House’, published by English Heritage, which includes a chapter by me and Rob Mitchell. Book edited by Madge Dresser. The book is full of insights into how the finances from the slave trade built the aristocracy and the legacies still visible in the British landscape.

Link to Amazon here.

The book is very expensive but a FREE PDF DOWNLOAD is available of only the text, the link can be found on this website.  It doesn’t include any of the illustrations etc, but hopefully you’ll still enjoy the read.
