Between 1450 and 1850, 12 million Africans were shipped across the Atlantic, and 10 or 11 million got there alive. A number equal to 1/3 of those shipped might have died in the initial raiding or march to the coast. The volume of the trade increased from the 16th to the 18th centuries, with 80% of the total coming in the latter century.
