Impact of Diasporas on the Making of Britain

Collaborators and more projects

The Impact of Diasporas on the Making of Britain programme arises from our collective experience in many other research projects that have interrogated primary sources which reflect the identities of past human populations in the British Isles, Europe and beyond. We have engaged in a number of relevant research projects investigating related themes and collaborated with organisations listed below.


People of the British Isles

The Impact of Diasporas team worked in collaboration with this project, sharing data that result from both projects.

  • Funders: Wellcome Trust and University of Oxford
