Summary The Meermin set sail from Madagascar en route to South Africa in 1766 with a Dutch crew and human cargo, slaves bound for hard labor building the Dutch colony, Cape Town. In a dramatic altercation, the slaves mutinied and managed to overpower the Dutch crew. The ship ended up wrecked on a wild, windswept beach 200 miles east of Cape Town. This program tracks the efforts of archaeologists, historians, and slave descendents to discover the full story of this dramatic historical event.
