Aurore (slave ship)
The Aurore ship captain would force the slaves to lie down on the ship in a packed tight spoon-like position in order to occupy as little space as possible. This had to be done so that the captain would gain maximum profits. Leg shackles were also used on board the Aurore to keep the slaves together and enslaved.
