Monday

London Visits

Dr Angus Lockyer of the School of Oriental and African Studies took the students on a fascinating tour of East London, from St Catherine’s docks to Hoxton Square. Walking through this highly diverse area, notably including Brick Lane, the group explored how migration had altered London, and discussed the development of the city through a range of socioeconomic changes.
