Caption: African slaves. Engraving of native African slaves during the 19th century. Between the 15th and 19th centuries many Africans were shipped to the Americas, Arabia and India. The slaves were generally bought by European, American and Arabic traders from Africans along the African coast. These traders had in turn captured the slaves from the African interior. The first industrialised country to abolish the slave trade was Denmark in 1792. Other countries followed, although some just banned the import of slaves and did not free their current slaves until much later. Photographed from an 1880s book on the travels of Scottish explorer David Livingstone.
