It may not seem like it right now, but in a few months we'll all be looking back longingly at these freezing temps.

The Slavery Project

Slavery has been part of the human condition for centuries. Why has slavery been an accepted part of numerous civilizations through time? Why does slavery continue to exist today in various forms around the world?

With these questions in mind, AntiquityNOW has launched The Slavery Project (TSP), which comprises curricula designed to explore slavery’s history, the social and political conditions that gave rise to it, the psychology of human bondage and the conditions today that continue its practice. We've done a series of posts about this project and the important history behind it. Read more.
