In our second episode Professor Jules Pretty and journalist Martha Dixon, take you on a journey to discover why we need to learn from our past in uncovering the global impact of migration on our people and our land.

Public History Mends Lives

Professor Tracey Loughran from the Department of History at the University of Essex and Kate Mahoney from Healthwatch Essex discuss how they have used public history to better understand women's experiences of their health during the course of their lives.
