The Impact of Diasporas on the Making of Britain is a major multidisciplinary research programme funded by The Leverhulme Trust and based at the University of Leicester.
The overall aim of this project is to conduct research into the impact of ancient diasporas on the cultural and population history of Britain and how these events have shaped identities in the British Isles both in the past and in the present.
What makes the programme unique is that its principal purpose is to bring together the expertise from a number of different disciplines in order to create a fuller picture of the complex origins of the British people.
The programme, which began in January 2011 and is set to run for five years, is based at the University of Leicester but also funds related research within the INS at Nottingham. Dr Jayne Carroll, Director of the INS, is a member of the project team. The programme's PhD student, Eleanor Rye, is also based at the Institute.
