Making Britain Database

Making Britain Database landing pageThe Making Britain database, curated by the original project’s research team, continues to provide free online information on over 450 South Asians in Britain from 1870 to 1950, the organizations they were involved in, their British connections and the major events in which they participated.

Designed as an interactive tool, it offers engaging and innovative search and browsing options, including a timeline, location maps, and web diagrams which demonstrate South Asians' interactions and relationships in Britain at the time.

The database also highlights selected source materials, bibliographical references and archive details for researchers interested in the South Asian presence in Britain.

Each entry point to the focus of the ‘Making Britain’ research project, emphasising the connections between South Asians and Britons that took place in Britain itself during the period 1870-1950. The database offers an exciting window on South Asian contributions to British life in this period.

We welcome any feedback or further information that can enhance the database.
