Past event - Rencontres du Château

Slave-Trading and Slavery: the Voyage

03 October 2009 to 03 January 2010

As part of a study carried out by our conservation team on La Marie-Séraphique, the slave ship which has become emblematic Nantes’ triangular trade, the Château organised an event around the theme of crossing.

These first “Rencontres Histoire du Château” (seminars on the history of the castle) shone a light on how slaves were traded and then transported from the African coast to the colonies.
