Description

In the second EduMod session on slavery, a specific focus on the city of Edinburgh will shine a light on what Scotland’s capital city gained from the transatlantic trade. Much is known about Glasgow and the recent report by Glasgow University shows just how much wealth was channelled into the development of the Empire’s second city. What, then, of Edinburgh? Did it benefit to the same extent? And what traces of that history can still be seen as you walk the streets during the festival?
