OUT AND ABOUT IN LONDONíS SUMMER / AN OPEN HOUSE FOR ALL COMERS: IMMIGRATION TO LONDON FROM ROMAN TI

This programme provides a major insight into the constantly changing face of
attitudes to life throughout the centuries. Each lecture is a broad view of a particular theme coupled with a closely connected visit to a place of outstanding attraction.


London was and is a city of many ethnicities. Some have come and gone, and some have stayed for centuries. The Romans, Saxons and the Normans added to the indigenous population with their own cultures. Down the ages there have been French, German and Dutch: Huguenots and Jews: Europeans of all sorts: settlers from the Commonwealth, South Asia, Africa and the Caribbean. This lecture will examine the peopling of London, why immigrants came and what they contributed to London’s cosmopolitan metropolis.
