Another England

Black and Asian histories are a vital part of England’s story. Yet in our books, at our historic sites and in our records they're not well represented.

Another England aims to better understand the stories of people of colour in England. We are working to create an accessible public record of these histories and the places that are important to them.

You can see our research giving a brief history of Another England and explore some of the stories and places you have told us about. We also held a number of community workshops around the country and are writing up what we learnt from you, so come back soon!

Our photographic exhibition 'Human Stories: Another England' took place from Wednesday 10 October - Sunday 11 November 2018, created in partnership with the NOW gallery.

Another England Map

The Another England map tells the story of our multicultural heritage through the cafes, churches, houses and workplaces where people gathered as communities have formed and settled in England.
