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.
The project was launched on 4 February 2020, at an event which brought together historians with expertise focusing on the legacies of tangible heritage left behind by trade and enterprise:
Dr Charles Jones on the River Plate entrepreneurs
Dr Rory Miller on the West Coast enterprise
Dr Carrie Gibson on the Caribbean
& Dr Graciela Iglesias-Rogers on the Hispanic Anglosphere project and the National Trust
However, we are not only seeking contributions from academics - anyone with a fascinating history to unveil is welcome to contribute using this contact form.
These Forgotten Histories will be published on our website such that they will never, truly, be forgotten.
