Between 1620 and 1820, twelve millions of Africans were transported across the Atlantic.
At the time theBritish were the biggest slave traders and their trade was known as the triangular trade, because of the route it took.
Ships sailed from Britain full of goods such as guns and cloth. These goods were exchanged with African chiefs for slaves, then they carried their cargo across the Atlantic to the Americas and the Caribbean Islands.
