In the lead up to 2020 and the 250th Anniversary of the arrival of James Cook and the Endeavour,
this Annual History Lecture turns our attention toward Aboriginal people at the heart of empire rather than the periphery.

Professor John Maynard will explore the significant and largely missed movement of Aboriginal people to Britain from the late eighteenth century through to the twenty first century. Through his lecture he will analyse memory and location in an Aboriginal context, far removed from the White Australian experience, providing an Indigenous perspective and insight about these journeys
