Barbado’ed: Scotland’s Sugar Slaves

Barbado’ed: Scotland’s Sugar Slaves

When Oliver Cromwell transported 50,000 Scottish slaves to Barbados during an unprecedented act of ethnic cleansing, they disappeared from the history books. Three hundred years later, BBC broadcaster and writer Chris Dolan goes in search of their descendants, the island’s Redlegs, a small community still eking out a subsistence existence.
