One World One Essex

About

For centuries people have migrated to Essex. Almost everyone who lives in Essex has come from another land or culture. You could descend from Roman invaders or their families and slaves or Anglo-Saxons or Normans or even the Dutch. Your family could have come here from another part of Britain or Ireland, or you may have come in more recent times from one of the countries that were part of the British Empire. Whatever your family's journey, you are here. This diversity of people from around the world has created colourful communities, which are ever growing and changing and with it so is the heritage and stories of Essex people. The Exhibition looks at a mix of different stories from seven communities living in Essex, their journeys, lives and experiences. The pot is common to all cultures and a characteristic example of each community featured.
