In 2020, Canning House launched the Forgotten Histories project, gathering lesser-known stories of the relationship between the UK and Latin America so they would never, truly, be forgotten.
A year on, on 11 February, we welcomed the authors of our published pieces to speak on their research, and the historical roots of lasting ties between our regions across infrastructure, society and sport.
With support from the APPG for Latin America.

What's your Forgotten History?
Canning House's Forgotten Histories is a public history project, welcoming submissions from anyone with a fascinating story of relationships between Latin America, the UK, and the wider world which has spent too long waiting to be heard.
These submissions will be published on our website such that they will never, truly, be forgotten.
