About

Historian Coll Thrush offers a new and compelling view of London's history through the lived experiences of indigenous women, children, and men who have travelled to the city, willingly or otherwise, since the beginning of the sixteenth century. They included captives and diplomats, missionaries and medicine people, poets and performers, athletes and sovereigns. Together, their stories illuminate a London that has until now largely been ignored: an imperial capital shaped in profound ways by its entanglements with indigenous peoples and places. Benjamin Franklin's own Craven Street is part of the story.
