Amistad slave ship replica continues epic journey.
In 1839, 53 slaves mutinied on board the ship and were captured, but won freedom in a historic legal battle with the US government.
Its arrival in the UK commemorates the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade within the British Empire. Yesterday it set off from Bristol's Floating Harbour towards the Bristol Channel, where it will then head to London's Canary Wharf. The ship will dock for a few days before visiting Portugal, Senegal and Sierra Leone. The voyage retraces the slave "triangle", which saw European merchants export goods to West Africa, where they would be exchanged for slaves.
