About this deal

Journey through a series of rooms in which the struggles, joys, creativity and resilience of living in a new land are brought to life through audio, films, photographs and personal objects. Much less is known however about those who have died trying to reach the sea, crossing the endless desert of Ténéré, in south central Sahara.

this is one of those amazingly simple yet powerful children’s books that adults and children alike can appreciate. He wants Migrants: The Story of Us All to be seen as an alternative history of the world, in which humans migrate for a wide range of reasons: not just because of civil war, or poverty or climate change but also out of curiosity and a sense of adventure.the two World Wars, the Cold War close Cold War The political tension and competition for power that existed between the communist East and the democratic West after World War Two. In this period of enforced inactivity, when almost all Migration Museum staff are in furlough, we are running a small number of blogs written by friends of the Museum on subjects related to the current pandemic. Mukti Jain Campion talks to Jennifer Potter, author of The Jamestown Brides: The Bartered Wives of the New World. He challenges the premise that having a permanent home and a lifelong nationality are considered normal, as if they were part of the human condition. They would seem an ideal example of the mobile life which Miller extols – and a good example, too, of how persecuted mobile populations often are.

Through extraordinarily powerful images, Migrants narrates the journey of a group of animals that leaves behind a leafless forest. Alone of the peoples of the ancient Aegean, wrote Plato, the children of Athens could claim to be autochthonous, earth-born, living always in one place, ‘truly dwelling in the land’.In France, Marseilles is still sometimes known as La Cité Phocéene after its founders from Phocaea, now the Turkish coastal town of Foça. Wide-lens history dominates Migrants but it’s in a close-focus portrait of the actor and dancer Josephine Baker that Miller excels.

In this guest post, Dr Trotter reveals the fascinating real-life story of the woman featured in the painting: Mrs Elizabeth Fouracre. Dr Trotter chose a study for this painting as the cover image for her book ‘The Married Widows of Cornwall ’. On the contrary, says Miller: humankind is the migratory species par excellence, settling every continent bar Antarctica, not once, but many times over.That the legend of Brutus was a ninth century fantasy concocted by a Welsh monk named Nennius – with the aim of affirming a British place in the club of civilisations – need not concern us. Britain continues to be a major source of emigrants in the 21st century – not something we often hear about. She has led and developed several projects to promote social integration through art, published a number of books and was selected for the Illustrators Exhibition at the Bologna Book Fair 2018. It provides valuable insights into the ways in which migration has shaped our world, and challenges readers to reconsider their preconceptions about this complex and often controversial topic.
