Human Cargo: Stories & Songs of Emigration, Slavery and Transportation by Matthew Crampton (Paperback) (ISBN: 9780956136121)

‘Matthew Crampton has taken a fresh look at the worlds of slavery and emigration.

He’s unearthed some fascinating stories and, crucially, added folk song to let us hear from those whose voices are usually silenced.

Songs give such a distinct perspective on history - and this book gives us an elegant, vital insight into human suffering and survival.’ Cerys Matthews

How can history help us understand today’s refugee crisis?

This rich and timely book gives voice to emigrants, slaves, convicts and other human cargo from the 18th and 19th centuries.

Its striking mix of story and folk song sets these past voices beside testimony from today – so shedding new light on a defining disaster of our time.

Created by writer and folk singer Matthew Crampton, Human Cargo started life as a words-and-music show - performed by Matthew and the London Lubbers shanty group.
