Abstract

The piece uses a model derived from analysing the modern drugs trade where evidence is notoriously difficult to gather, in order to suggest possible applications to the medieval trade in slaves. The piece also looks at the possible role of the slave trade in the early formation of what would become the kingdom of Poland.
