Slave Life - Scenerio 3

Scenario three

Taken to other parts of Africa to be employed on the land.

These slaves ended up:

·in work houses mainly mud huts with an overseer

·the overseer was normally very harsh as they had risen up the rank themselves as slaves

·an overseer could get very rich from pilfering

·work all day with little time for rest at night

·occasionally would kill the overseer at night and escape

·could be freed due to hard work

·could generally find their own way home from studying the sun movements and enquiring about directions from traders 

·generally learnt lots of farming skills for when they returned home as free men

·probably the only set of slaves who ever returned home.
