Welcome to Liverpool!

Old Liverpool

 

Liverpool, by far, was one of England’s most important and active cities in the slave trade. From starting as a large village which focused on fishing, it rapidly developed into a major center for the slave trade. People from around the country flocked to this port city looking for maritime and industrial jobs.

 

Location of Liverpool Within England

 

 

 

Liverpool was ideally located for the slave trade. It was one of the safest ports during wartime and the city was deeply connected to the hinterlands which provided the port with numerous manufactured goods for exportation. This gave Liverpool enormous advantages over other major English ports, especially London and Bristol.

 

 

 

 

The City owed so much of its success to its dominance of the English slave trade that it was one of the last major cities to accept the abolition of slavery in 1807. The city’s connection to this dark business ran so deep that it can even be seen in its architecture. This video emphasizes how important the slave trade was to the merchants and everyday citizens of Liverpool. Slavery provided them with their livelihoods, and it was truly at the heart of Liverpool’s growth into a major commercial center.

    Very well done. Interesting, short, tight segments of information, and well presented. I like the super-simple page design, not a lot to distract from the information presented.

    Excellent website, particularly regarding the immense amount of in-depth and compelling material. Your general survey of history in Liverpool from the Medieval Era is phenomenal. I wasn’t a huge fan of the website’s layout, and overall, its theme. I found that it appeared too modern and didn’t complement the subject material. Other than this, good work!

  19. Hailey Sabol says:

    I loved the graphics! Overall theme of the site made it fairly easy to navigate. I appreciate the breakdown of topics across pages and I enjoyed reading about Liverpool’s involvement with the slave trade.

  20. Josiah Depaoli says:

    Excellent layout and good use of varied media. Really in depth information as well. Really like how you break down the topics into several subsections with their own pages.

  21. Samantha Stafford says:

    This website in fantastic in your combination of texts, images, and videos. I really thought it was cool that you had a video displaying the layout of Liverpool from a map! I like how you interspersed videos with text and included a separate page for maps. My only advice would be to change the background of the home page; dark gray is kind of dull. But the information is presented fantastically overall!

    I had never thought about Liverpool as being an important node of the slave trade. I liked the overall theme of the site and the presentation of the information however the red text was a bit off putting. The videos and especially the good map provided help to visualize the reach of Liverpool’s economic influence a lot.
