description
This is the website of the Connecting Histories partnership project. Britain today is commonly portrayed as a multicultural nation. However, the diverse historical experiences which constitute the story of this ‘new’ Britain are less well known. The history of the West Midlands in the 20th century is central to this story but the stories that make up this history remain largely hidden in archive collections. Connecting Histories aimed to release the potential of these collections so that connections can be made between the past and the present and thereby encourage debate about our shared identities, our common sense of belonging and our multiple heritages. The project began in February 2005 and ended in July 2007. The aims of the project were to make documents and photographs available about the histories of diverse communities in Birmingham, support people from a range of different communities to get involved in archiving their histories and ensure that community histories are told and used to support learning
