Migration Timeline

This interactive migration timeline helps to contextualise migration to Britain within the larger narrative of global events such as imperialism, civil war and economic hardship. Drag the timeline horizontally or use your mouse-wheel to scroll across and click on each event to find more information. You can also enter text in the Keyword filter box to show only events with those keywords. For example, try Cardiff and find all the events related to that city. The year buttons move the timeline expressly to that date.
