There are property and tax records from those days.
Sounds like an interesting research project for someone.

Thank you for the quotes,Cheryl,

If the number of slaves was large enough (I don't suppose there are any estimates out there?), and if the majority of slaves had a documented flow (from A to B), it might be possible to form some hypotheses about specific cases. The slavery discussed in the book was actual fairly recent (1100-1350 A.D.).

It would also be important to know if the slaves were predominantly male or female and if there was a process whereby they could/did achieve freedom at some point and become incorporated into the host cult.
