About Migrations

Discover how the migration of peoples has shaped the modern world.

This beautifully-illustrated book details the movement of people and cultures around the world - from the early migrations of Homo erectus out of Africa 50,000 years ago to modern refugee movements and migrations.

Through striking photographs, evocative illustrations, and intimate first hand accounts, Migrations explores famous (and infamous) movements in history, from the Middle Passage and Trail of Tears to the California Gold Rush and the Windrush generation.

While many traditional world histories focus on (mainly European) "exploration" and "discovery", Migrations explores the story of each continent and focuses on cultures rather than conquest. Migrations highlights the human story and the positives: what has survived, not just what was destroyed.

With a foreword by award-winning historian, broadcaster, and filmmaker, David Olusoga OBE, Migrations is a history book with a fresh perspective, focusing on a topic ever more relevant in the modern world: Where did we come from? Why do people leave their homes? What brought us all together?
