The island of Barbados once boasted one of the two remaining functional sugar windmill in the world. When I took the original image around 2009/2010, the sails that you may see in pictures on the web did not form part of the structure. If my memory serves me well, I did visit in the off-season for sugar cane cultivation [February through to July].
In this project, you will have the knowledge of the transatlantic trade in Africa, the way in which African slaves laboured in areas other than sugar production, you will learn of the manufacturing process on a typical sugar plantation before the year 1838. In addition, the writer will identify the markets for the by-products of sugarcane. There are pictures included to give an additional view to the words.
