The Middle Passage was the stage of the triangular trade in which millions of Africans were forcibly transported to the New World as part of the Atlantic slave trade. Disease spread and ill health was one of the biggest killers. First the Dutch East India Company in the 18th century, followed by some other countries and companies in the late 18th early 19th centuries, realized that the inclusion of surgeons and other medical practitioners aboard their ships was an endeavor that proved too costly for the benefits.

wealth originated from the slave trade. A perfect example of this phenomenon is the recently restored Danson House in Kent. It was built in 1764 for John Boyd, the son of the St Kitts planter Augustus Boyd. The Italianate villa was designed by Robert Taylor, and the garden by Capability Brown. Fortunes made in the Caribbean were central to the creation of the idea of the 18th century English country gentleman.

The most senior was the man Charles awarded the slave trade charter to in August 1518. This implies that the Spanish and Portuguese crowns may well have been working in close cooperation in the early development of the transatlantic slave trade. He was Laurent de Gouvenot (Lorenzo de Gorrevod in Spanish) – an aristocrat in the Flemish court and member of the Spanish king’s council of state (Flanders, predominantly the northern part of modern Belgium, was part of the Burgundian Netherlands, ruled by Charles). The trade was a catastrophe for Africa.

The edict marked a new phase in the transatlantic slave trade in which the numbers of enslaved people brought directly to the Americas-without going through a European port first-rose dramatically. Historians David Wheat and Marc Eagle have identified about 18 direct voyages from Africa to the Americas in the first several years after Charles I authorized these trips-the earliest such voyages we know about. The transatlantic slave trade didn’t start in 1518, but it did increase after King Charles authorized direct Africa-to-Caribbean trips that year.

An estimated 12 million Africans arrived in the Americas from the 16th to the 19th centuries. Michael Tadman, in a 1989 book Speculators and Slaves: Masters, Traders, and Slaves in the Old South, indicates that 60-70% of interregional migrations were the result of the sale of slaves.

The enslavement of human beings was practiced in some form or another all over Africa. Sanctioned by law and custom, enslaved people served critical and well-defined roles in the social, political, and economic organization of many African society. Domestically these roles ranged from concubines and servants to royal guards and advisers.

The transatlantic slave trade was, in the words of the African American scholar and activist W E B Du Bois, ‘the most magnificent drama in the last thousand years of human history’. For Dubois the drama was an unmitigated tragedy: ‘the transportation of ten million human beings out of the dark beauty of their mother continent into the new found El Dorado of the West. They descended into Hell’. This trade relied on the commodification of African bodies, and would transform three continents in a period of enormous global change
