Sunken Slave Ship

http://www.reachoutmichigan.org/funexperiments/agesubject/lessons/newton/sunken.html

Description: The Henrietta Marie's trip began in 1700 in London. The ship stopped in Africa to trade glass beads, guns, and pewter to tribal chiefs in exchange for a human cargo of 190 African slaves and continued on to Jamaica and sold the slaves to plantation owners, but never returned to London from there. It was overtaken by a violent storm and went down off the Florida coast. Marine archaeologists unearthed the ship's artifacts in 1982. Using items such as the bell and shackles, historians pieced together the ship's saga, providing a rare look at how slave ships operated. Archaeological discoveries like the Henrietta Marie change the way we view history. How do they affect our view of the present and future? Standards 5.2.3 and 5.4.6
