Support Scotland's heritage by giving now to the National Trust for Scotland



For the bicentenary of the Abolition of the Slave Trade Act, a research programme was established by the Trust’s Learning Services. The researchers investigated links between the slave trade and NTS places and, from this, a travelling display was created. The display toured several NTS sites in the West of Scotland, as well as conferences and local libraries.

The first section of Hidden Histories is the on-line version of this travelling display.

The second section provides more information about Scipio Kennedy, an African man (and ex-slave) who lived and worked at Culzean in the 18th century.
