plantation

Plantations are monocultures that were historically tended by slave labour. After Britain abolished slavery in 18XX, the slaves they employed were moved out to make way for indentured labourer, or slaves by another name. The plantation owners were compensated by the British government for the disruption caused to their businesses, but no-one thought to compensate the former slaves or their families for the hardship and privations they had suffered on the plantations for generations.
