LC: To give a broad overview of life in Britain (the rise of the cotton trade in the north)
Last week, we learned about how African slaves were taken to the USA to work on plantations. On these plantations, we know that slaves would work under horrendous conditions to harvest crops such as cotton and tobacco.
On the return journey of the Atlantic Slave Triangle, these resources were shipped into Britain. In the north of England, there was an increasing need for cotton. Much of this cotton was taken to Liverpool and later distributed around northern England.
