Voyages: the trans-atlantic slave trade database

Excellent news! The fantastic Prof Eltis' database has been expanded and it is on-line and free! The interface is amazing and now the database has information on over 35,000 voyages that disembarked 17.7 million African slaves in the Americas.
A couple of months ago Prof Eltis presented a seminar at the Institute and I thanked him personally, but I must say it again here: thank you and all the researchers that worked in the project!
