This micro-site within the National Archives website focuses on Asian and Black history in Britain from 1500 to 1850.
The site includes essays, photographs, illustrations and lots of documentary material. There are also two virtual tours, which are called: ‘The Black and Asian Presence in London, Liverpool and Bristol’ and ‘An 18th Century Voyage of Discovery’. The tours include documents, photographs and explanatory notes.
Although there are no lesson plans on the site, the source material could be relevant for a research project, or as stimulus for a classroom debate.
