Our events aim to bring history at the margins of local consciousness to the fore.
Through three strands of events, we plan to uncover little-known elements of Cheshire’s history, whether marginalised voices, under-represented histories, or challenging existing ideas.
- Strand One: Discovering and Remembering Stories of Migration and Refuge
- Strand Two: Uncovering Hidden Histories at Chester: Walking Tours
- Strand Three: Uncovering Hidden Histories at Chester: Online Talks
Alongside a diverse panel and community workshop focusing on stories of migration and refuge, we will highlight hidden histories of Chester through walking tours, and ensure these untold parts of our past are heard through online talks.
These events are led by the Department of History and Archaeology, University of Chester in collaboration with Cheshire Archives (CALS) and
Cheshire Halton & Warrington Race & Equality Centre (CHAWREC).
