Aye, it wis aabody : a story of Scotland's role in the slave trade

Finzean Primary School (Aberdeenshire)2019
'Aye, it wis aabody' is a community heritage project that explores Scotland's links with chattel slavery in the Caribbean, through the experience of one rural community and Bankhead Endowed School (now Finzean Primary School). Previous research by Robin Callander identified the sale of enslaved people in Barbados as the source of the money that funded Gilbert Ramsey's legacies. It would be another generation before this history was explored in detail by the pupils of the school and the wider community, through the 'Aye' project.
