Forgotten Histories

2020 Publications

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.
