Atlantic Slave Trade Docs

Like I'm not busy enough... I signed up for a MOOC (Massive Open On-Line Class) on the Atlantic Slave Trade.  I need to flex my writing muscles, and I just might learn a thing or 2.

Anyway... during today's lecture, the professor mentioned this site:
Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade
It's a MASSIVE collection of data about every single slave trade voyage they could find records for.  There's a bunch of different ways to search it, but suffice it to say, if you need this data, there's enough for a dissertation.

I'll add  more as they come along... (I've also signed up for one on Alexander the Great that starts next week.  Look for additions from that one, too.)
