Map Mudo (Migration Map)
The maps in this activity show migrations undertaken during the 19th and 20th centuries. The world map shows migrations to and from Britain and Ireland between 1820 and 1980. Migrations within Britain are shown on the map of the UK. The information about each migration is illustrated with historical photographs, drawings or film footage.

Toggle between migrations to Britain and migrations from Britain using the O'r DU (From the UK) and I'r DU (To the UK) switch in the top right corner.
