This E2BN site looks at the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the abolitionists who fought for emancipation of enslaved Africans in the British colonies. The profits made from the sugar plantations generated enormous wealth for many people, it also saw the first boycott of a food product. The techniques of consumer boycotts and petitions set in motion by the Abolition movement are still reflected in the fair trade movements and politics of today.
War witness is a new and developing project set up by E2BN that aims to provide a rich repository of digital resources including images, video and eye witness accounts from World War 2 and more recent conflicts. Including accounts of the foods eaten at the time.
