"Slaving States" Although much has been written about slavery in the Classical World we know very much less about the supply of slaves from outside the Mediterranean world. This talk uses the analogy of the Slaving State of Dahomey. During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries this kingdom supplied an enormous amount of slaves to the traders of the Middle Passage, and its raids, and the accompanying ceremonies, were well-documented by European eye witnesses, and most recently in Zora Neale Huston’s extraordinary interviews with one of the last victims of the trade, recounted in her Barracoon. What we know of this process will then be contrasted with a specific example from the ancient world, the tribe of the Arverni, of whom we know from Strabo, Poseidonius and Caesar, among others, as well as from the more recent excavations by Matthieu Poux at the oppidum of Corent. The analogy of Dahomey will be used to illuminate this trade, for which there is evidence in the tens of thousands of Roman amphorae found on the site. LI 205
