Christiane Engel – Movement and Migration

There are numerous reasons why people move and migrate: to escape from war, conflict, natural disasters, poverty, or famine. Driven by a desire to find a safer place for their families in a country that offers better education, healthcare & a more stable economy.

Everyone in Britain has migrants in their family history – even if they have to travel back thousands of years to find them. From the Ice Age to the present day, find out how the movement of people to and from Britain has shaped the UK.

‘Movement and Migration’ illustrated by Christiane Engel is available from Oxford University Press.
