Venetian slave trade on the Black Sea
- I,ve been reading "The Tarttar Khan's Englishman"
recently and just stumbled across the part dealing
with the Venetians acting as middlemen for the huge
number of slaves captured by the Mongols during Batu
Khan's invasions of Russia, Humgary and Poland during
the 1230's and early 1240's. Sort a being corporate
before corporations were cool. Has anyone read
anything on this?
