New to Hackney? Know little or nothing about Hackney’s history, but would like to know more? Want to understand more about the family backgrounds of the children in your classrooms?

Explore the history of the borough through the experiences of people from all over the world who have made Hackney their home over time, from the first people to settle in Hackney 1500 years ago to the pioneering migrants and people seeking refuge in Hackney in the 20th and 21st century. Discover how migration history is interwoven with local history to better understand diversity in Hackney today.
